... and I know I can always find it here!

So anyway, here's the deal: I work in a yarn store. I also (simultaneously) have my own interior design business. I was out and about yesterday b/c of my latter occupation, and stopped in a competing yarn store in the area. I was not really impressed, but the lady working was helpful and nice to chat with, and they carried Mission Falls 1824 Wool, so I bought 2 balls- one apple green and the other a dark eggplant color.

So my question to all my knitting compatriots is: what the heck do I do with it?

nice colors!!! im kinda new at this whole knitting thing(not completely new but new enough) but ive been obsessed with hoods lately. im working on a hooded scarf that ive seen on here and else where. if the balls were big enough that is. i dont know im kinda stuck on scarves too because im making them like crazy for all my friends(alittle annoying because id love to make a blanket or something) i hope i helped, at least alittle.

I paint these little pictures with a temporary poison. each one just like the other. i wonder why i even bother.

That wool will felt, won't it? Those colors sound great together. I could see making a little felted clutch or case with some kind of interesting or funky design done in the darker color. I think that would be really striking.

I sell ecofriendly luxury yarn, recycled at

Unfortunately, they're superwash merino, and only about 87 metres. I fear I might be stuck with a hat or gauntlets or the like, despite the fact that I've already made a ton of them this year.

(Thanks for the suggestions though- they'd be great if I had enough/if it would felt!)

I knit Haley's Comet with 1824 Wool.  http://www.marniemaclean.com/patterns/Comet/index.html I don't think it was the merino, so I don't know if the yardage is different, but I only needed one skein for the smaller size, because the hat stretches a lot!

Hmm... I don't really wear hats but that looks like a whole lot of fun to knit! (I think we might have a winner!)
