Dear Knitting Godesses--What Does This Yarn Want To Be?
Help me out here....
10 skeins of worsted weight Galway Wool in a light pea-greenish color (which actually suits me nicely, so this is gonna be for ME!). It's fairly soft but might be a touch scratchy directly on my skin. And there's plenty of it-- ~2000 yards.

So what should I make? Does anyone speak "yarn"? What is it telling me it wants to be?

Thanks!

What does it want to be? Besides MINE?

I bet something cabled would look wonderful and you could wear a shirt under it for the wooliness of it.

How 'bout this?

Cable Down Raglan

I'm thinking of doing it in some lovely sapphire blue cascade 220 I got from Little Knits.

I can't wait til the IK spring issue comes out to get the pattern!

This is my second choice:

Sunrise Circle Jacket

Best,
Susan

Such a pretty color! Cables would look beautiful in it! The Central Park Hoodie from Interweave Knits Fall 06 would look pretty in that (there is a KAL thread for this too).

Thank you for such good suggestions!
I agree with you all...this is begging for cablework.

Good luck whatever you decide. Galway is nice stuff.

I'm not normally a fan of green, but that is gorgeous! If it's a little scratchy I'd say it wants to be a sweater of some kind! Maybe a cabled cardigan?
