I have six balls, or approximately 720 yards, of this. It's a discontinued colour I found in a sale, so I can't get any more. What on earth can I make with 720 yards? It's not enough for a sweater, is it? Or at least, not a sweater with sleeves.

Thank you for any advice.

I made a Leaf Lace shawl with Rowan's discontinued Rowanspun 4-ply, which is a similar tweedy yarn. I like the juxtoposition of the lacy shawl with the tweedy yarn.

You could also make a vest, or you could add other colors from the line and make a fair isle sweater.

The buying of more books than one can read is nothing less than the soul reaching for infinity, and this passion is the only thing that raises us above the beasts that perish.

Thank you, Rachel. I don't think I can buy any more yarn just at present (dang that budget) so a nice fairisle sweater is alas not an option. And I'm making a vest in another yarn already. And I have three different shawls on three different sets of needles. On the other hand, can one have too many vests and shawls? Or can anyone think of something else? I know I can't. Perhaps I'll just stash the yarn until I can afford to go and get some more...
