All right, I was at Wal Mart and I saw some really nice yarn for 60% off!  Of course, I grabbed it and bought it before I could think twice about it.  I don't knit or crochet, ect really.  I mean, I can do a decent knit and purl stitch, I can decrease, increase, cast on and bind off.  Crochet?  I can crochet a very long chain! Tongue  Anyway, I got home, and I didn't know how to use the yarn so I decided I would improve my crocheting skills.  I borrowed a crochet book from my mom and tried to make a square.  I ended up with a mess of yarn.  Then I tried a circle. . . and failed. I asked my sister, my mom for tips, looked for tutorials on Google. . .
I ended up using half of the skein before my stubborn self finally gave up.  In total, I made eight 'squares' and five 'circles'.  Oh well, I had fun, right?  Wink

For even more fun with your new yarn, check out a local yarn store (LYS) for lessons/classes OR to see if there are just plain ol' knitting groups (or crocheters) that get together on a regular basis.

If all else fails, hang on to the yarn until next spring when birdies are building their nests. Cut the yarn into one inch (or shorter) pieces and spread it around for bird builders to use.
