What to do with this yarn?
I have 2/50g of Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran yarn that I got when on a trip. I never have knit or crocheted with this and not sure what I can do with it as I don't think there is enough for a shawl or similar item. It feels like such a nice yarn I don't want to do something that won't be appreciated. Can anyone give me any ideas? Thanks so much. puddles

There's enough for a hat or fingerless mittens, baby shrug, etc.

A small scarf would work and feel wonderful. This is lovely yarn although it does have a slight tendancy to pill.

I made a baby hat and some booties out of that. Soft!

I have a book called One Skein Wonders, by Judith Durant. You might find some ideas there. The yarn sounds wonderful! As others have mentioned, a scarf or hat would work.
