I rescued this cute pink sweater from 'death by hanging' [at Savers] and the tag said "100% Lamb's Wool"... I ripped it and handwashed the wool. Now what should I make? There is enough yarn to make a decent sized knitted item for myself/my daughter etc. The weight is like worsted weight, 4ply, maybe slightly thinner than worsted, between worsted and sport, I guess I could use needles size 5-6 although I am flexible in that department Cheesy

Do you guys know any cute patterns for this kind of wool or is knitting something from wool a no-no when you live in Arizona?

Some info about myself:
1. I live in a VERY warm place
2. I don't want to knit/own any pink wool socks
3. I have a 3yr old little girl [pink is out of the question for my son and I don't want to dye it]
4. I am an advanced knitter and can follow pretty much any pattern. I also crochet.

Any suggestions? Grin

It might be the "very warm place" thing that's the kicker for lambswool, but this baby/toddler cardigan pattern is designed to be flexible for any weight of yarn: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATThaiku.html

I've spent many nights in Tucson as a visitor and it gets darn cold there at night!!! I think a sweater is quite appropriate and necessary!!!

Cold at night, in the winter, yeah. So I might postpone the knitting until October Smiley

you could knit (and felt, if you want) a bag for your daughter.  or you, if you want a pink bag.

or check this thread for some great ideas for knitting for a girly toddler.
