We're in the (long) process of going through all our junk in preparation to move to the UK. Last night, I came across a box full of yarn picked up at a yard sale during my last attempt to become a knitting goddess (about four years ago).

There's an acrylic/mohair(15%)/wool(15%) blend in there - four balls (50 grams each but no length given). The stuff is composed of 2 thick plies - very fuzzy and variegated (from light lilac to medium purple). I have an idea it is what you'd describe as "chunky". The gauge is given for six 6 needles.

I was thinking of maybe knitting a scarf, and possibly a hat (or headband) if there's enough left over. Any other ideas?

i'd say it's perfect for a scarf and perhaps a calorimetry to match. knitty.com has a pattern for calorimetries. i just made a bundle of these, and they're super easy!

just an FYI -- size 6 needles seem a bit small for chunky yarn... :??

have fun!
