I have 3 350-yard skeins of Mountain Colors' Weaver's Wool Quarters in Sierra (variegated autumn colors), in a gauge (according to the label) of 20 sts per 3.5" on size 6 or 7 needles -- sport weight, then. It's 100% wool but pretty soft. I've started scarves with this twice but didn't find it very satisfying. To get a look at the yarn (which is still made) go to http://www.mountaincolors.com. There are a few suggested patterns for the bigger skeins of Weaver's Wool, which is equivalent to *sigh* 4 skeins of what I have -- mostly pullover patterns. So, can I make a poncho with what I have? Or should I try for a few smaller, matching projects, like socks and a hat or something? Or, better yet, has anyone ever felted with this? I could make a killer bag, methinks. I just need something to show off the colors, and something not too difficult (I've only ever made simple hats, scarves, and purses before). Thanks everyone in advance!!! Feel free to email or PM me too.

With that much yarn, yes you could make a nice poncho with lots of fringe.
