Bernat Cool Crochet
Has anyone used this yarn? I got 3 balls for $5. I couldn't resist as the colours are so pretty and it has a nice sheen. I don't however crochet but I am sure I can find something to knit with it. Gauge for knitting is 28 stitches, 36 rows on 3.75mm. Any suggestions?

No, but I've been eyeing it up, too.

I'd suggest going to the bernat website to see what patterns they've used the yarn for. Even if you don't like any of them, it may give you more ideas of what it would be good for.

Thanks. The Bernat site only has 3 crochet patterns for that yarn. I will let you know if I find anything exciting. I may even try socks with it.
