Hi, by the way!  I'm new.  hehe

This morning, I finished knitting Cleaves (the very odd shrug type thing) from the archives of Knitty, which, of course (should have listened to other people!) turned out as a huge disaster.  So I just frogged it... 

But now I have 5, 100g balls of superchunky cashmerino (reeeally cheap bargain off ebay cos it was the last in a dye lot) to use up.  Which works out as about 410 yards, I think. 
Anyone have any ideas on what to make??  Cos it's not really enough for a sweater I don't think, and I don't know.  I don't really want to make a scarf unless it's a really gorgeous one. 

So help would be amazing!!   Huh

Well, I don't know if it was just me, but I read on the forums that lots of people had trouble with it...

I looooved the look of it, so quirky and cosy, but, I made size medium, and my gauge was fine when I checked it, but it turned out about a foot bigger than I wanted it, and kept slipping down to my hips...

Maybe you'd have more luck though!   Cry

I'm not sure on the yardage if you do it in a solid color, but Hug from the first issue of Magknits would be a great use for the cashmerino.
