What can I do with this!
I purchased some of the following cotton yarn. OK, I fell in love with the colors and didn't think what I would use it for. It is Handpainted Melange Bulky Cotton Yarn, 800 yds. 4 stitches on a size 10 needle.

Any suggestions.

plenty of yarn for an anthropologie-inspired capelet! (or other shrug)

What about this? http://magknits.com/July07/patterns/nereides.htm

It is a really beautiful pattern that would show off those colors.

Chrissie, that is beautiful. And is says Simple to do.

That I will keep in mind. I was hoping for a vest of some type, but I didn't think there was enough yardage.

But the shawl is wonderful. Thanks
