Look what I got today :cheering:
Now I need ideas what can I knit with it??
There are two balls of each
I bet you all have loads of ideas.
Unfortunately all I can think of is the 'dreaded scar' I am fed up with scarfs lol.
Please let the ideas roll in. Its so soft and lovely. I have given it a cuddle already :roflhard:
Thanks in advance :notworthy:

Maybe a bag or a shrug?

A bag sounds like a fab idea. Any ideas which one. I look at these patterns available and I cant choose.
What do you think?

What is the yarn content? If it's not an animal fiber (wool, etc.) it won't felt, so you'd be making a non-felted bag. That should help narrow choices down some.

hi its 47% wool 6% kid mohair 6% polyamide
Does that help any :??
Thanks for answering me :hug:

OK, it should felt some, but now I need to know if you WANT to felt! :teehee:

What about this one from knitty?
It even uses 2 colors. :shrug:
09-29-2006, 10:44 PM
I would LOVE to felt. :cheering:
I will look at the pattern. I may need help with the felting.

Oh that looks hard :oops:
What about an easy shrug? :shrug: :oops:

I didn't mean to scare you! Sorry!
This is a link to a Knitty Gritty episode where they knit rectangles and sew them together in different ways to make shrugs and ponchos.
3-way Rectangles (http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/shows_dkng/episode/0,2046,DIY_18180_36322,00.html)
