i bought this lovely, outer wear yarn (re: it's a little on the scratchy side :) )

I love the color and the feel, and would like to make a jacket/coat/cardi. here is the yarn amounts (i have two colors)

a pale sage, DK 2674 yards (7 balls)
a pale peach, one cone Worsted, 1050 yards.

here are pics of the yarn..

I found this one to be cute AND use up (sorry) almost ALL of your pale green DK weight yarn. While it is a lot of SS, it did appear to have some design details that might spruce it up.
