What to make,what to make! I got some awesome orange and yellow (think 70's) yarn if undertimined materials today at the thrift store ($.99 each!) It is a bulky weight and I have quite a bit of each color... now what should I make with it????

Ohhh, I'm seeing a diamond pattern vest!! Very 70's chic!

Or slippers. You could do slippers. And arm warmers and a hat!

:D

Maybe a bold striped scarf, done in k1, p1 ribbing, say, 20 rows of each color? The ribbing would make it lay flat, without a busy texture to clash with the stripes. I'm thinking a narrow scarf with fringe, but a wide scarf could look cool too. If it's a nice wool, a matching hat could be fun. Not sure if I'd go for a hat if it's acrylic.

Lots of kid's clothes options....

I love Amy's idea...but thought I would throw in a striped hoodie idea. :) I am making an orange hoodie right now (very slowly making), so I may be partial...but the spring colors are nice and bright, so it would work. Maybe a lightweight stole?

I love that idea. I have a really cool vintage leather jacket that it would look so cool with.

Alas, these are not spring colored yarns. The orange is really like a rust color and the yellow is *just* like a stove I used to have.
