So, I've been hoarding this yarn forever:

(I hope that works...)

It was bought for me birthday... a YEAR ago!!! I've just been having a horrible time deciding what "pattern" to use for it.

I've narrowed it down a little.

I do NOT want a granny square.

I am not completely opposed to doing squares or hexagons, but would avoid it if I could find a solid-piece that I like.

I DO like Catherine's Wheel and Ripples.

What would YOU do with this yarn?

Thanks! I've come across a LOT of Teresa's (art of crochet) stuff. I don't want a hat, as I have enough yarn (more not pictured) to make a blanket, and am really just looking for pattern suggestions. I am sick of googling images and trolling crochet blogs for inspiration, and want a little human interaction!

Thanks again!

All I can think of when I see bright coloured yarn is amigurumi. You've got a nice spring palate going on, and I'd make rabbits and birds [maybe carrots out of that orange, depending on the colour-trueness of the pic].

And I would pair the grape and green [bottom right 2] as some elbow-length armwarmers, with square wooden buttons.

Hey, you asked what I would do with it =3

Ravelry! I keep adding to my favs there. Too much to ever crochet Tongue.

What about a swirl?

I think either a Catherine's Wheel or Ripple throw would be lovely in those colors.

I love the amigurumi monsters that were on here. I should make a few sets of them to give to the kiddos!

LOVE Attic24- I've stalked her forever. Never heard of Heidi Bear though I have seen the african flower hexagon and like it. I have been s.l.o.w.l.y. making my way through the crochet blogs here. There's a LOT of them!

A swirl you say? Will have to look that up. And I am leaning towards a variation of a ripple if I do decide to make a blanket.

Thanks all for your feedback! It's greatly appreciated!!

I recognize the purple as Dusty Purple from Vanna's choice. It's good for amigurumi.

I have made the Modern Alchemy Afghan pattern that is free on Lion Brand Yarn's site. It would be beautiful in those colors.
