Mellow Yellow

If you had this yarn:


What would you make?


It's so yummy and soft. For you yarn junkies here are the stats:


kettle dyed pure merino wool
worsted
261 yards
3.5 oz

Oh yeah ... there's a catch - I don't look good in yellow so I figure a hat or scarf is out. Not that I couldn't make one for someone else but ... you know ... this yarn is really delicious. I kinda want to come up with something spectacular for me ;-) Bad, bad, bad, selfish crafter I know!

So lovely! I think I would make mittens. There is a great pattern for fingertip less ones on a-friend-to-knit-with.blogspot.com

What to make? What to make? With some yummy yellow yarn? How about some coffee cozy sleeves? Or a great bag depending on how much you have.

Mmmmm mmmmm good! That yarn sure does look delicious! I don't know what you should make with it, but whatever it is will be fabulous! How can you go wrong when you start off with something so nice?

Mmmm, Malabrigo! I think slippers are a great idea, either that or crocheted flowers. Have fun with your new yarn! Yum!

Mmmmmm... that is lovely, lovely yarn. I think I would opt for a bag as Ruth suggested. Can't wait to see what you do with it.
