Any Suggestions? (There’s Something in It for You)

Somehow, I managed to order this yarn not once, but twice, from Little Knits.

Not that I am upset about my confusion. The yarn is lovely. But I am left with the question—what can I make with 1,260 yards of this bulky-weight yarn? The listed gauge is 3.5-4 stitches per inch on 10-10.5 needles.

Any suggestions? To reward your efforts, I’ll send pdfs of two of my scarf patterns to everyone who provides a comment with a link to (or email address for) a possible project in the next week.

Reward Pattern #1 is River of Gold, a simply but flashy knit.

Reward Pattern #2 is Frost Fairy, which features knit-on angled ruffles.

Let me know what knit-worthy projects you come up with. I’m counting on you for some inspiration!

    What about the “vine lace top down cardigan” that was in your queue? That was about the right gauge and need something like 1100 yds.

    I just today finished Drops 83-7 w/ some Eskimo I snagged at Stitches. Obviously a quick knit and a gorgeous sweater. 2 sisters tried to steal it today. Unfortunately a winter sweater, but it will be much worn in 7-8 months!

    How about this Drops wrap-front sweater? I think you could get gauge on it, and the yarn would be so pretty.
