What Would You Do With This Yarn?
 
My grandma just sent me a TON of Shine Worsted yarn from Knit Picks. Obviously, I can't do longies or anything with it because it isn't wool, but I need to find something to do with it. I seriously have 2-3 balls of nearly every color available. I also have several balls of their "Vacation" yarn. What kinds of projects or specific patterns would you do with it?

You could do all sorts of sweaters or hats! Hudson Hats in stripes!

You could totally do longies if it is acryli or other synthetic. It is just like having fleece longies. Totally wash and wear.

And as an aside. OMG. Lucky

ETA I see it is a cotton blend. There is still no reason you could t make knit pants if you wanted to. You would jut treat them as you would store bought clothing.

Oh my word, I had no idea there was such a thing. That is awesome! Thanks so much for posting that!

Thanks for the other ideas too, ladies! Since I want any longies I do to be made of wool for the newbie, I think I'm going to use this yarn on things for the older two and probably sweaters and hats for all three of them.

if you have that many skeins of that many colors, OMG can you imagine how sweet scrappy sweaters would be? I can totally imagine a whole family of simple cardigan style or cardigan hoodies in scrappies. :giggle2::giggle::wub:

you could also make toys or small blankets.

It would make beautiful shrugs, caplets or anything like that!
