Hello, I just recieved to beautiful skeins of Manos del Uruguay in the mars colorway. It is teal, pink, purple and blue and I have no idea what to make with it. I thought about doing a my so called scarf but I am not sure. Do you guys have any ideas?

I love Manos. I am just finishing an afghan in Manos and it's gorgeous. A scarf would be nice, maybe a pillow? Or you could buy a few other skeins and start an afghan? It's so soft that it's nice to make something you can use. Can you post a link to "My so called scarf"? This wool looks great in a cute stitch, but the vareigated colourways don't always pick it up.

I'm not sure how variegated would look but I last finished this in manos using less than 2 skeins and I love it:

I'm convinced something about the stitch used or something somehow makes it feel softer too.

Thanks guys. I am going back to the store they were bought at this sunday, so maybe I will pick up a few more skeins and make an afghan.

Here is the pattern for "My So Called Scarf":

and also, once you get on ravelry, you can go to the yarns section, search for the type of yarn you have, and you can find examples of what others have done with that yarn. ;)
