what to make out of this delicious yarn?

I bestow upon you, the yummiest, most magnificent 8oz ball of licorice twist yarn in the "Iris" colorway by Hearthfire Yarns, that I have ever laid my eyes on



trouble is, I dont know what to make out of it. I have a pair of longies and a skirty on the back burner waiting for some trim. I do not have trim for this. and all I know how to make is longies, shorties, capris, skirty, soakers, and baby legs.

So what do you think this gorgeous yarn should be?!

Do you have enough to make some longies in MY size? I can surely send you my measurements and the title to my car in exchange.

My vote is for longies. Super versatile

I was thinking of a nice sweater or hat and shrug... perhaps longies and matching mittens would be cool too.

OOO Hats are easy, for a small, CO 64, dec after 4-5 inches, every 8 sts every other row. To make bigger, just increase CO by 8's.

I vote hat!

ETA: i can send ya some free hat patterns if you want
