Looking for ideas - as a hopeless eBay addict, I've just bought a bunch of Chunky Sirdar Snowflake, described as 'odds and ends, total weight over 24 oz'.  

Aside from scarves and phone cozies, any ideas as to what I can do with this stuff?

It looks like you might have enough there to make a  stripey sweater.   Just leave out the browns and orange!

Ooh, a throw sounds good.  But could I knit it or would I have to learn to crochet??? Huh

I can tell you that I knitted both a pillow shams and a throw blanket out of a similar yarn and they turned out great.  I did the standard knit row 1 and pearl row 2 for the shams and a continuous knit stitch for the throw.  If I had to choose which of those two projects to go with first, I would do the blanket just because you can change the size and pretend you meant it to be that way.

 Another idea is a shawl or a wrap to wear over your shoulders when there is a breeze.  Also, one friend of mine made a knitted "slip cover" for her slightly damaged favorite purse.  Sounds strange but it looks good.  After she made it to fit the purse, she just tacked it in place with needle and thread.

BTW, great yarn!

I am currently knitting a sweater for my husband with this stuff.  I bought the yarn two years ago, and am close to finishing it on this, my 3rd attempt.  It's really tough to find colors now, as this yarn is discontinued.  But it knits up so wonderful, soft, and snuggly-- looks like fabric instead of knitted.

Definitely go with stripes-- mine is mostly navy, with light grey stripes outlined in dark grey.  I think the orange would make a great highlight stripe at the bottom or on the chest.

Have fun!
