I just received 2 skeins of knitpicks bare laceweight merino yarn (that's 880 yards per skein) and I realized I have never knitted anything laceweight before!  I'm probably going to dye the yarn, but I have no idea what to do with it!

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks  Smiley

If you like shawls, here's a huge list of patterns w/ approx. yardage (free and in books, for sale, etc.) http://simpleknits.blogspot.com/2007/08/296-triangle-shawl-patterns.html

Check out knittingpatterncentral for tons of free pattern links to lace, shawls, scarves, as well as search the finished objects fora here and KH for 'lace'. For books, I can recommend Victorian Lace Today (not the simplest of lace patterns though), Best of Knitters (Shawls and Scarves), and there's pleanty of nice lace patterns in back issues of IK.

If you don't like lace, you can carry it double- or triple- stranded to get a garment-weight.  Personally, though, I love lace!  The MS3 was great fun earlier in the year, and I think there are some similar mystery shawls going on on Yahoo groups at the moment - some may still be open for sign-up.  The other thing is that simple lace (at least) works up quite fast, so you could do scarves for Christmas presents (or for yourself!) - Knitty's Branching Out is very straightforward, or just choose a lace-pattern you like and design your own!
