Looky Here!

A friend of my mil's gave here some yarn odds and ends to give me. No full skeins just some odds and ends to maybe use in granny squares and a couple pieces of plastic canvas that will be nice to use in the brims of newsboy caps that I've wanted to try. The next day mil brought over a giant ball (girth 26.5 inches) of this beautiful metallic gold yarn from her friend! You can see how big it is by looking at the soda can next to it.

This yarn is probably a sport or baby weight yarn. I was thinking that it would be very nice in a shawl. Do you think there is enough? Any pattern suggestions or other ideas of what to do with it?

Wishing you all a wonderful week.



  1. Ooh, pretty! I think you have plenty to make a nice shawl, something light and airy. I've always liked the Pineapple Lace Shawl on favecrafts.com; it's on my to make list. Or the Aphrodite wrap from bynumber19.com. Whatever you come up with will be pretty :-)

    1. Pretty patterns. I really like the pineapple one. The yarn I have is probably baby weight or sport weight so I need to see if the pineapple one can be adapted for the lighter yarn.


What are your thoughts? Your opinions are important to me so if you think I am right on or off my rocker let me know.
