i have about 4 balls of this pretty, sparkly pink yarn (its called adriafil chic, i think its discontinued  Sad ) ive knit it and unknit it a million times already because i dont know what to do with it. I really want to make a shrug with it, but I don't have the circular needles for it. (I do have a size 6 circular, but its only like 12" long) Any ideas??

Sounds like it would make a pretty lacy shrug. You can use straight needles if you make the kind that is basically a rectangle seamed up partially at the ends to make sleeves.

There's a pattern for a short sleeve one here at craftster
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=48268.20 and to make the sleeves longer, just keep knitting the rectangle longer.

Oooh....what would I do with sparkly pink yarn...
Probably a set of with mittens and an adorable scarf or maybe a cloche (sp?) hat...

Or a really rediculous sweater for my German Shepherd. ;-)

Not knowing the weight of the yarn, it's harder say for certain. But if it's itty-bitty, you could pair it up with another yarn and knit double-stranded.

sorry I was quite vague  Cheesy

The kind of shrug I wanted to make was kinda like the anthropologie-inspired capelet floating around here

mittens wouldn't really do because it isn't very soft. its kind of like mercerized cotton, but it's not shiny. its a regular worsted weight I guess (I can use it with size 6 or size 8 needles)

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

i think i have 4 balls (its all rolled into one now)... i have 4 olive greens and 2 browns as well (no, they do not look good together at all). the label says: 82% acrylic, 18% polyamide gr. 50 and 100 ca. (I don't know what those measurements mean though!)

Maybe a capelet? A scarf or scarflette? Or a hat (you said it wasn't very soft, so I'm not sure about the scarf/scarflette idea, but it doesn't need to be too soft to make a good hat  Cheesy)? Or maybe a little stuffed pig (joking, of course, but it could be cute)?

You could also knit with it double stranded, using another yarn of a similar color, or even a contrasting one for an interesting effect.

I found a picture of the yarn!
This is what it's currently knit as, it LOOKS fine but theres a 95% chance it won't come out right, I wasn't using a pattern or anything I just made up the shaping out of my head as i went. The problem is that the decreasing is too frequent, this is when it was smaller but when it got small enough to fit the back of my neck I had to do a few inches straight, which looks silly.
