LYS is going out of business..
EVERYTHING in the shop is 50% or more off. I got some great buys on expensive yarns that I wouldn't usually buy. I also bought 3 skeins of Lamb's Pride Worsted. Is there anything I can do with just 3 skeins? It's 85% wool/15% mohair; 4 oz., 190 yards/skein. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

It's tough to get past hat, scarf, mittens for smaller amounts of yarn. Pillow covers maybe.

felted clogs? Booga Bag? Coronet hat from Knitty?

Felt a Purse
I did a couple with between 45 and 60 stitches across the base and about 30 Rows for the base, and just winged it for the rest, I do not remember any of them taking more than 2 skeins. So 3 should be pleantly
have fun
