what to do with this yarn?

Carol_AnnJuly 5, 2007

I bought some Cherry Tree Hill superwash merino fingerling weight Supersock yarn... just could *not* resist the colors! But it's so cool... I kinda want to do something with it, rather than socks, something that I'd see more often... but, it's only one hank (420 yds., 4 oz.). Any thoughts on, for example, a lacey scarf pattern that would use only that amount of yarn? Or other small projects? The coloring is so great I almost want to make it into an art object and hang it on the wall so I can see it all the time! :)

You could make a hat with it and also make a scarf using any left over for the scarf with yet another kind of yarn so you will have enough to make that scarf.

I made this "Falling Water" scarf for my Grandmother for Christmas last year. This was only my second lace project, but I loved the way it came out.

There is a link to the orignal pattern in my blog, below

I love the hat idea -- I love hats -- but for whatever reason, I rarely wear them. I might have to change that habit :)

And I love the Falling Water scarf -- that looks perfect! I have two different hanks of the Cherry Hill in different colors, I suspect one of them will go to this scarf.

Thanks, both of you!

Craftfetish, you can be proud of that scarf. I'd like to make it but that chart scares me. LOL! I've never worked from a chart. Is it just a supplement to the written instructions.

You could totally make this socks! I'm scared of charts as well (although I have noble intentions of learning to work with them, I still haven't) - the written instructions work just as well.

(And it is only a 14 line or so pattern, so you won't even need it a few repeats in)
