In my effort to destash I've reencountered a bag of Joann Angel Hair yarn that I bought on a whim because it was ridiculously soft and on sale. The problem is that now I still have no idea what to make with it. It's too thick and furry to reasonably be any sort of flattering sweater for me, plus I only have 720 yards of it. I'd like to make something with it, preferably now (I have no idea why) and am calling out to all of you for ideas.

I have 4 skeins (480 yds) of a variegated grey and 2 skeins (240 yards) of a variegated purple.

Do you have any kids, nieces/nephews, little siblings, etc you could knit for?  It looks like that yarn might be good for a stuffed toy since it's so soft and furry.  Or a stuffed toy for yourself of course.  Wink

I'm not positive, but I think that's the yarn I used to make the corkscrew scarf from Loop-D-Loop. It was perfect (I think) for that pattern, and it ended up really soft and cozy. It was so nice to make, because the yarn is so soft and nice.

Well, right now I'm making a skirt with bright pink and purple Angel Hair.
...But that's just my sense of style.  Or lack thereof.
I think you should make something outrageous, because that is what the yarn calls for, but also something you will actually wear.

I got one skein of that in purple as part of a present from the future in-laws.  I was thinking of adapting the Pedicure Socks pattern in Knitty to the appropriate gauge - this yarn would feel so good on freshly massaged feet!

Thank you for the suggestions, everyone! I fortunately have very few children I can knit for (only one, actually) and no use for stuffed animals for myself. I'd been looking at the corkscrew scarf pattern and a couple other scarves, and will probably end up making at least one scarf with this stuff, but ran into a Spiderweb Capelet FO done in this that looked suprisingly good while googling the yarn yesterday. Weird but I might actually wear it.

I made a spiderweb caplet out of it as a gift. They love to snuggle up with it!
