I recently bought 100g each of Grace silk/wool mix, Noro cotton/wool blend, and an alpaca/merino/silk mix. They're all beautiful and I had to have them...

But I don't know what to do with them! I've been scouring the web trying to find something funky to make but I can't seem to decide on anything, all the yarns have bright pink, cream and purple bits in.

Any good ideas for me people?
TIA

Do you think you can post a pic of the yarns? That would really help search for a pattern. Smiley Also, if you know the weight (fingering, worsted, sport...), it'd be great help too.

That would've been a much more sensible idea!

I'll get on to it...  Cheesy

Hm... how about a pair of fingerless gloves? or a scarf? How much of the noro do you have? It's Noro Matsuri, right?

I know, more questions are being asked than answered. But I'd really love to help you find the perfect pattern.  Smiley

You could make some beautiful fingerless gloves with the Noro and the Grace. Smiley

That's all I have. It was the only one in the store and I had to have it. It's definitely Noro but I'm not sure if it's Matsuri.

I make lots of scarves, never done gloves though, depends on the pattern I suppose!

Thanks for getting back to me.  Smiley

Did you see the Magpie scarf that's on here - it's made with different types and colours of wool - it's very lovely.

I'm a bit tempted by the calorimetry pattern on knitty - I think someone else on here's done one recently...

I have done a calorimetry using Noro's  Kureyon - it was beautiful. I didn't take a pic though before I gave it as Xmas gift. It was fun watching the stripes develop. Calorimetry is a satisfying knit and was a good way for me to learn short rows. Go for it!

Was thinking of doing it with the one on the left, the creamy coloured wool. Do you think it will work ok?
