Any ideas for 100yrds of hand spun single?
I thought I would write this on the off chance that someone would have an idea of what I can do with my first, handspun, yarn. It's single (not plied) and I have approximately 100yds, the WPI works out to worsted/bulky weight, it's slightly thick/thin and one solid color (light brown). It's 100% superwash wool, so no felting for this project :(

Anyone have any ideas of projects/patterns for what I have? I could certainly try to spin some more, but I doubt I will get much more than another 50-100 yards out of what I have left.

All ideas will be gratefully received.

Gosh, if I were ambitious enough/knowledgable enough to spin my own yarn, and if it was a successful endeavor (as yours was), I'd probably want to knit something that I would always be using, or something that would always be in plain sight because I'd be so proud of myself!!! That's really cool that you spun your own yarn--what an accomplishment! I'm a beginning knitter, so I'd probably want to do something "squarish" like a pillow for my bed--even if it didn't match the colorscheme!--with some neat stitches in it, or maybe a cute little handbag, or maybe something I could "show off" in my kitchen so that when I had company, I could kind of "nonchalantly" show off my yarn that I not only knitted into an object, but that I also spun, too! I'd want to do something multi-seasonal so I wouldn't have to put it away during certain seasons, too. Just my 2 worth, though...musings from a beginning (and not very creative!) knitter!
