Really thick yarn

In a foolish moment I brought some rather thick yarn that doesn't work for what I was intending. :(

Any ideas what I can use it for (other than a scarf)? It suggests 7mm needles. Oh, and I only have 2 balls and am a beginner knitter, so nothing big or difficult! :thinking:

when I run into that problem, I'll do a guage check on google...

I'll plug in needle size, and then "project"..or somthing like that, and go on a goose chase that way.
