I was given a bag full of yarn yesterday by my office secretary. Oh my gosh, you guys know the feeling of being given a garbage bag full of yarn...it's pretty much sheer bliss as your blood temperature rises, while you're imagining all the possibilities.
There is a lot of great stuff in it...some fun vintage rug yarn which I always find projects for, and some other nice colors and textures. But!!! There are six balls of just plain old cotton worsted weight white yarn. These balls are BIG too. I'd say there's as much yarn in one as those big 1 pound skeins you can get for like 8 bucks.
So what should I do with it?? it's not nice enough feeling really to make any clothes, I know that...but can this kind of yarn make good scarves or gloves??
I was thinking maybe even this blanket i've been wanting to make on lion brand, but again, the texture, will it be cozy??http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/patternView.fcgi?itemKey=1922244224
maybe this cool rug? http://www.lionbrand.com/cgi-bin/patternView.fcgi?itemKey=1922244712
but who wants a WHITE rug??
When I've asked people "what should I do wtih all this white yarn" they often respond "make snowmen!" How many snowmen can one woman make?!?!! haha
