Well, I just got my free Bernat Disco yarn in the mail (Mr.Brown) and now I look at it and think what do I do with it? :XX:

Any ideas as to what to make with it? What has everyone who got this yarn made out of it?

Thanks

I got the same color. After I'm finished with my holiday knitting, I am going to use it with a burgandy yarn and make a scarf for my 8 year old niece. she'd love it. I really have no idea what else to use it for. It's such an odd yarn.

I got Jungle Jive. I think I am going to mix it with another shade of green for a scarf also...or maybe a red :thinking:

I knit up a quick scarf with mine, but my dd thinks it would make that really cute hedgehog that someone posted last week. We ended up making on out of some really soft fluffy stuff instead since we couldn't find the disco in Mr. Brown. The hedgie is super cute!

well i have made two purses with wool and the fuzzy stuff, when felted it is cool. I have 3 skiens cause everyone who also order is giving me theirs in the family. I vote for the hedgehog after seeing it, too cute.

I got Jungle Jive... and I have to admit that it is the ugliest yarn ever. :lol: Maybe if it was mixed with something else it wouldn't be so bad, but I just can't think of anything to make with it.

(no offense to anyone that did find a use for it - I'm sure your FO's are lovely!)

Well, I got mine yesterday and here it is. Not something I'd seek out, but with a black outfit, perfect for New Year's (for my 26-yr-old daughter??) I knit it with some black Wool Ease.

You could use it to make the rock star scarf from knitty.com. I saw it in black at the store and that came to mind.
