View Full Version : What can I do with..

195 yds of Sport Weight yarn??? I got my order of yarn from Argosy (http://www.argosyyarns.com/servlet/StoreFront) and they were kind enough to include a complimentary hank of their Bonsai Bamboo (20% bamboo, 65% superfine merino wool, and 15% silk) in Old Rose colorway. I just don't know what I could do with it. It's like a light pink (almost looks like what happens when you wash white items with reds).

Go plug in the yarn at Ravelry and see what others have made with it.

Stash it until inspiration strikes.

I did a pattern search on Ravelry with 195 yds and sport weight and got a few things.

How about a mobius scarf, or this one from Knitty: Ice Queen


I love that one-you wouldn't have to add the beads of course, unless you wanted too.

It's beautiful yarn~ have fun deciding what to do with it!

Great links!! That bamboo looks really nice. I would make a hat out of it.

Hmmm...looks to me like it wants to be a keyhole scarf.

What a nice gift!
Don't limit yourself to tiny objects: Think about combining it with something else in your stash. Stripes of that pale pink would look pretty mixed with other pastels or with a deeper pink.

That makes me want to order stuff from them. How nice!
