I won 12 skeins of Brown Sheep!!!
Our local charity (that I knit/crochet for) has a "brunch" every year to "thank" all of us...This year it was cancelled due to the H1N1 scare... so my name was pulled and as a door prize I won 12 skeins of Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece...I just don't know what to make with it... the yarn feels kinda similar to Cotton Ease (LB)..and don't I don't make many dishclothes and the color is Holly...Any ideas out there??? Would it make nice hats or scarves???

If you can get on Ravelry, people have a lot of free patterns for that yarn:
