What to do with a small amount of yarn...
I found some fabulous yarn at Tuesday Morning and naturally there was only one ball of it. I knew it was probably too small to do anything with, but I bought it anyway. It was too fun to pass up!
I've searched the internet today looking for more like it and of course it's discontinued.
So what do you do with yarn like this? It's only about 35 yards of yarn and still being new at this I'm clueless as to what I could use it for. Any ideas?

Is it enough to make a hat? Or you could use it as an accent color..like stripes in a hat or something?

What's the yarn like?

Headband? Fingerless gloves?

It's Trendsetter yarn called "Shake." It's that mix between really loose chunky yarn, and then tighter bits. I'm sure that has a name. I was thinking maybe a hat, but it seems that it's so chunky it would knit up too quickly to make a hat. Afterall, I want this for ME!!
A headband sounds like a neat idea!
