I would take up knitting Smiley

I used the recycled sari yarn (from ebay) combined with lion brand? Homespun and made it into a blanket


without knitting knowledge (and with no desire to learn) I'd suggest macrame, or friendship bracelets (on steroids since its much thicker than embroidery thread). 

How are you at papermaking?   if you took the yarn apart the lovely hued fibers could be worked into homemade paper...

Can you weave? 

or perhaps made into yarn hair accessories (yarn dreadlocks etc.)

actually I'd love to learn to knit but it will probably be a while as I've recently reacquainted myself with sewing and plan on making my wedding dress - which must be considered suicidal at best
The paper making is a great idea. I did make paper back in the day and loved it but I don't have access to the proper equipment and have an adversion to blender 'paper' but might try it anyway
thanks for the ideas  Cheesy

you are ahead of me I have never learned to sew, and knitting is not hard to pick up, in jsut a few hours you can be well on your way to a scarf Smiley

another idea is fingerweaving.
