I picked up a lovely wool at Joann's yesterday. It's a black, white and grey thick and thin twist. It goes from about worsted weight to about bulky (or chunky). I picked it up because I fell in love with it, but I have no idea what to do with it. I knitted up a swatch on 11s, but it still felt a bit tight for the thicker sections. The label recommends 17s.

Any suggestions? I currently have 1 skein (last skein in the store), but 3 more are on their way.

What's the brand and name of the yarn and I'll look it up on Ravelry and see if I can come up with a list of ideas.

you could always knit a pillow. it's a great way to show off a yarn that you love and just had to have (unless it's a novelty ladder/ribbon :eyes:).
