What to do with extra-bulky yarn.
Hi, this is my first time posting. I am a relatively new knitter, but am having tons of fun.

I recently went to a yard sale and could not pass up a bag full of extra-bulky yarn and was wondering if you guys had any ideas on what to do with it besides a garter-knit scarf. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm not sure, it came balled without the label. I'm pretty sure that it's wool though, it is very nice, but I'm just not sure what to do with it.

How about SONNET? You can use any yarn, and the pattern includes easy instructions for translatin your gauge into the correct number of sts.

Thanks. The yarn is a couple of different colors, black, cream, green and and blue, I don't think that there is enough of one color to do a whole project in that color.
