Hey!  It's my first post!  Yay!

So, lucky newbie that I am, I received a bin full of yarn from someone who heard that I was learning to crochet.  Shocked  It has been great for learning the stitches and for some small projects (two pairs of legwarmers, fingerless gloves, a couple of hats and a pair of ponchos...) but now that I am looking for more challenging projects, I don't know what to do with the yarn I have.
I have no idea how to tell what type or weight it is, or what hook best suits it.  So I don't seem to be able to use it for a specific pattern.

What do you suggest?  I have enough yarn to keep me busy for quite some time... Huh

Thanks for the advice!

How about a blanket?  You could do a bunch of Granny squares and then join them together.
