What to do with very heavy rug yarn?
I recently inherited a quantity of yarn from my grandmother. Among it are several skeins of very thick, 100% wool rug yarn. I'd say it's resting diameter is somewhere around 3/8". I have no idea what to do with it, though it is very nice and I'd eventually like to make some type of project with it.
I searched around online and came up empty-handed. I asked my mom what grandma had bought the yarn for, and she said my grandmother had bought it back in the 50s to knit a shrug- but never got far, deciding she really didn't like the pattern after all.
Any ideas are welcome. I'm sitting here looking at this yarn and my mind is blank- I have absolutely no idea how to use it.
