hmmmm

a hat

a scarf, skinny scarf.

coasters

dish scrubbys, acrylic is great for dealing with greasy dishes.

a bunch of granny's daughters, to match up later with another color yarn for a lapghan.

A small purse might be nice, or a doll outfit. Perfect for a small doll. yoiu could probably make a pair of pants for an 18" doll. That'd be nice.

I have a skein of Red Heart Multi in blue.
I'm currently using it to make a scarf, and it's coming out pretty nice for the variegated yarn (:

Being a stuffie designer I always say - make a stuffie!!!  I absolutely love variegated yarns in stuffies!!  Green variegated would make an awesome tree top, dinosaur, monster, shirt or outfit for a boy, etc... there's just an endless number of ideas you can do.

One skein of yarn can be a great thing.
If you do make a scarf or hat you can block & steam it to make the yarn softer too.

I'm crocheting a bowl from red heart and it's turning out really nice I think.

The green part of a watermelon purse/hat/scarf!  Many people use plain green, but real watermelons are kinda stripey, I plan on trying variegated green when I finally get around to trying this!

ETA: I tried to link my search results but it didn't work.  I went to advanced search, chose only the crochet board, and used watermelon as the search term.
