I came to this category hoping to find ideas for using up about 400 yards. And there are no posts here. So, here's a call for ideas on using 400 yards of yarn. I found a quilt shop who was closing out on their yarns and got some nice stuff for half price. Some is semi-bulky, all is wool. Some is worsted weight.

If you have a Ravelry membership, you can search the pattern archive by a myriad of criteria, yarn quantity being one of the available sort filters.

Thanks for the tips. Just last night I was looking in one of my knitting books that is all ponchos, long, short, and caplets. I may just have to start at the beginning of the book and make every one.

Many small shawls and "shawlettes" take under 400 yards, and there's no reason why they can't be knit in worsted. I am a huge fan of cowls, too. They are a quick knit in a bulky yarn, incredibly cozy to wear, and a wonderful gift via small yarn investment. You can probably get 2 pair of some nice cabled fingerless mitts out of a skein, too. As a mom, I live in these, as they allow me to still button and zip toddler clothes without taking them off :)

Hats, mittens, scarves, slippers, baby sweaters, these fall into my categories of "instant gratification projects. Items that dont take alot of yarn, and work-up relatively quickly.
