Well I don't know how much of the yarn you would be willing to buy... My first suggestion would be a shell top, but depending on the size of the top, that could get a bit pricey...

A year-round option would be to make a cute handbag with the yarn.... or even a shrug or some type of wrap....

A soft, cushy sweater.

A cowle-type neckwarmer/scarf.  (Circular, that slips over the head and looks like a big, warm turtleneck.)

A floppy, mod-style hat.

A poncho, shawl, wrap or shrug.  (The 1960's wrap I have instructions for would look lovely in this.  I can provide it if you like.)

I'm posting this here 'cause it seemed somewhat related.

I have a bad habit of buying yarn grab bags on sale-- usually five or six skeins of the same yarn in different colors.  I simply can't resist a bargain and I'm hopelessly addicted to yarn! The problem is, I now have all these random skeins of beautiful yarns in mismatched colors and no patterns!  I've made all the scarves I can stand to make so I'm looking for new ideas and patterns to make use of my growing treasure trove of yarn.  Any thoughts?

Gosh, I think it would depend a lot on the yarn and how much you have.

You could make purses, pillow covers, log cabin quilts, stripey hats.

One of my knitting circle buddies made some gorgeous leg warmers using various color combinations of double strands of different types of yarns.

I found some wonderful, soft, lightweight worsted acrylic, vintage, at an estate sale and couldn't leave it behind.  (I paid $1 for the box...)  I am fortunate to have the label on at least one skein, it's made in France, and imported by "Unger", and is called Fluffy.  If you have the labels, you can usually track down some actual pattern booklets by the maker of the yarn.  If not, take a sample with you to a yarn store and find something that looks and feels similar, and maybe you can use patterns that were made for THAT yarn.  

Otherwise, maybe you could just knit up a bunch of squares in different patterns, all the same size in inches, and sew them together to make a knitted sampler afghan.
