Okay- in a weak moment, I bought not one but TWENTY FOUR skeins of Patons Voodoo yarn. It looked so cool and was very (VERY) inexpensive (otherwise I wouldn't have looked twice at it). I automatically thought it would make a fabulously funky teenie throw for my bed- just something to throw over my shoulders. Well, I started knitting a swatch to see how it works up and it is very easy to knit, BUT there is no rhyme or reason to the stuff (it kind of looks like a pelt of fur from an Elmo doll)! I have used over a half a skein to make the swatch (which I have been stretching at to make it look CLOSE to the shape of a square) and I am feeling a bit discouraged about the whole thing.

I tried looking up project ideas/ patterns online and have only come up with pillows.... which makes me think I may end up just using it for that (bleah).

Any suggestions?Huh

I didn't think I'd get any response to this  Sad .... that's okay. I returned the yarn. I just didn't want the aggravation anymore. Thanks anyway, everyone. I have too many projects WIPs going on right now, anyway (yeah- like that will stop me from starting something new LOL).

Back to the sticks.....  Smiley
