beautiful yarn, no pattern
I bought 10 skeins of 50% alpaca 50%wool 50grms each.
sage in color. I am thinking it 3-1/14 needles

I have searched and searched for a pattern to make something with this yarn but have become unsuccessful.

I bought this yarn on ebay and now I can't get the same lot number.

I would love to make a great item, but do not want to waste it on a small item....

does anyone have any ideas??????

A little shrug? A shawl? A hat, scarf, gloves set?

Yes, with that much yarn you can get a decent size shawl since you can use larger needles for a lacier pattern - 4 or 4.5 mm.

I was kinda hoping someone had a lacy cardigan pattern for that amount of yarn.... oh well.

For some reason I can not stand shawls.... hmmm maybe I need some knitting counseling!!
Thanks for your help.
