I frogged a horrible ugly sweater and now have quite a bit of thin black bouclé-ish yarn. It's...mmm.....sport weight? yeah. thin uneven bumpy sport weight.



What should i make it into? I've been on a sweater kick ever since i learned to knit simply because i like being able to wear my addiction, and when knit on 6s it ends up being very light and lacy, buuuuutttt i can think of no patterns that i've found recently that would work perfectly with it.

Any ideas?

Depending upon how much you have, you could consider swatching with two strands and see what you come up with.  Maybe you could make a little V-necked shell or a shrug.

HOKAY. i swatched with two strands and basically ended up with terrycloth. that would be great if i needed a washcloth, but i want clothing, and terrycloth is Not the most slimming material. i'm thinking it would be most cooperative on some size 4 needles (which i don't have). bugger. perhaps i'll get up early tomorrow and go check out the "$1 pairs of knitting needles" tip i got the other night....
