What to use baby weight wool for?
I was planning on making a felted needle case with some wool I dyed, but it is baby weight so it would take me forever because it is really thin. Any suggestions for such a thin yarn? (I have a baby so any cute baby projects are a plus)

It's good for lace scarves too if you decide to make something for yourself.
