I just got 10 balls of Lite Lopi  (it was on sale - $1.95 a skein!) and I don't know what to do with it. I'm thinking a felting project would be great, since I know I'd probably forget and ruin a sweater.

Any suggestions? I'd prefer free, but I'll take any pattern ideas!

The forever popular Lelah, created by a fellow Craftster was made with Lopi Lite.

I personally think it'd be way too itchy for that.  A nice sweater could work, one that you'd be willing to wear something under.

A felted handbag would also be nice.  Knittingpattercentr al.com has tons of those.

I've always wanted to make a traditional Icelandic sweater with it because my family is Icelandic but the yarn is always too much and the pattern makes me scared to try.  Haha.

I'm actually knitting a rug for my dorm room that i'm going to felt with Lite lopi.  I'm too cheap to actually buy a rug though which is interesting cause the yarn costs more then a rug would....

Any excuse to knit, right?

I love the lelah, but I 1- don't have the needed boobs to keep it up and 2- my husband would have an anyerism!

I have a couple bag patterns I printed, but none of 'em have reall called to me, y'know?

I like the idea of knitting a rug though...*ponders*
