What to do with 2 balls of SWS
I have 2 balls of Paton's SWS. What would you do with them?

After seeing this post, I would definitely go with the Scrunchable Scarf.

I just made a scarf with that stitch pattern in another yarn. But it does look really nice in the picture. Maybe I'll swatch and see how I like it. It will look much different than the other scarf which was for a boy. Maybe......

I plan on going out and getting some just for this project:
http://community.livejournal.com/knitting/7494427.html

Although I think I prefer the mods done in this post:
http://community.livejournal.com/kni...80.html#cutid1
(Scroll passed Fetching for the scarf)

I like it because it shows the colorway off, isn't too boring, and doesn't detract from the yarn.

I do like the Scrunchable Scarf idea, too, though. I guess if I have troubles picking between 2 colorways I have an idea for the 2nd one I'd get!

Thanks Everyone!
Thanks for all the input! I decided to do the Sophie bag. I'm just finishing up the straps and will hopefully be felting tomorrow. My first felted project so that will be one more thing to check off my to-do list.

I think I might get another colorway and do another bag. The colorway I have turned out pretty dark. It's the Natural Navy colorway.

As soon as I have pics I'll post them in the FO board.
