Kidsilk haze.
I have a single ball of kidsilk haze in my knitting bag. Its been there for two years and it keeps giving me those reproachful "you're wasting me" looks whenever I reach in for more sock yarn. I'm not much of a lace knitter or chart follower. Is there anything simple I can do with it? Apart from use it as a very soft panscrub?
Hep.

Panscrub?

You're going to be limited because you only have one skein, but how about a narrow scarf like this? She used two colors, but no reason you can't use one...although it may be shorter. Click patterns and then fling.

Oh wait...you said no lace. Well you could use large needles and cast on a small amount and then just do garter stitch. It would be beautiful and lacy w/o really trying.

How about some really easy lace? The Airy Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts is a beautiful scarf.

Ice Queen from Knitty is easy and looks very impressive.

You could also team it up with another yarn.
