Hi - can you help me come up with suggestions for 10+ skeins (100 meters each) of a heather pink Schaffhauser Grace? It's 80% wool, 20% alpaca, and such a yummy shade of pink. Don't want to waste a stitch with it. Thanks much,

Jane

Sorry, folks! In this particular case, sharing is over-rated!!

If you like ponchos, you could make a lovely gorgeous big cabled poncho... I'd make a giant shawl/wrap.... (and then I'd send it to me)

Ok you didn't mention wht weight the yarn is - is it ike 1000m of lace weight? or dk? or worsted?

Anyway, if you have 1000m of worsted weight, you can maybe make a big snuggly oversized sweater. Other ideas are a wrap or large shawl. If it's not too thick, a large lace wrap would be lovely, I think.

Sorry, I did indeed omit that important detail. It's worsted weight.
