And here it is!! (Sorry, I took so long. Been busy. As you can tell, it'd been a long day.)

The scarf was done in single crochet and took an entire skein. I still have two skeins left though.  Roll Eyes

Well, finally did up some swatches.

Here's one knit on 6mm needles.

The back view with all my knots.  Roll Eyes

And then, just to try, a crocheted version.

Now....to decide what to make/do with them, that's the question. I have three large skeins.  I'm thinking a long skinny crocheted scarf & hat set.  Cheesy

3  Ugly Upcycled Yarn? Now called "Willy Wonka" in Spinning: Completed Projects by SharaLavallee on: July 24, 2009 08:11:33 PM
Here's a VERY UGLY upcycled yarn that I created from a VERY UGLY multi-coloured sweater.  It's sooo ugly, I think it's cute. Well, some of the colour combos are.

Edited to add:  So, I've decided to call it "Willy Wonka" 'cause it reminds me of large handfuls of candy sticks.  Cheesy

Now....what to make with it?
