Hi,
I bought a bunch of mercerized cotton from Peaches and Creme. The colors were so beautiful and apparently I did not understand that it is extremely thin yarn.

Does anyone know what I can do with it--patternwise. I feel bad because it is so lovely ( several ombres), but can't think of anything that I would like to knit with it. I thought it was thicker than it actually is. I feel so bad cause I spent a bunch of money on it and have no idea what to do now.

Does anyone have any pattern ideas???

P.S. I'm not a doilies kind of girl:)

Hi,
That kind of yarn makes the BEST face clothes. Once I used one I got spoiled and I won't use anything else.
Also, the same goes for kitchen clothes, they make EXCELLENT clothes to wipe the counters and stuff.
