Hi Yarnies!

I have about 24 yards left of my super awesome Pixie Dust (http://www.knitcollage.com/yarns/yarns1.html?&collection=Pixie%20Dust) and I don't know what to do with it!  I'd like to make something fun for a friend but don't really want to do a braided scarf or rapunzel scarf.

Any suggestions?  I'm open to not just knitting too Smiley

Art yarn necklace!
I got some necklace clasps where you crimp wire or tiger tail into the ends and it worked just the same for yarn. I have made a few with handspun.

I love that yarn!!!  Do you have something else you could use with it like another more basic super bulky?  You could make this hat and just use the pixie at the top

Or you could do this cowl and just make it a little smaller
