So my best friend's mom...

Just went through her old stash, looking for "boy colors" for her son-in-knitting-law and a box arrived at my door with about a metric ton of Rowan Chunky Recycled Tweed in it...

I don't want to start another sweater until my first one is finished (Yeah, I know...)...

Of course, it sits there in my room, staring at me while I sleep. What are some ideas to give this angry mass of fiber some form?

or make some socks for the cold winter coming

Hats are nice

Quick easy gifties.

Maybe something for the kind woman herself?

Me? I just want a tea cozie.

I was thinking hats myself, but that's probably because I am knitting one at the moment LOL

Oooh, I'm so envious! I have about a metric ton of girly stuff! Rather expensive I assume, but an odd befuddlement -- if someone gives you more eyelash and glittery puffy stuff than you know what to do with, well, what do you do with it? I feel your pain.

I agree with YugiDean -- you should make some stuffed animals! Try to invent some unusual knitted critters...that would be awesome!

Just to say I think "son-in-knitting-law" is a brilliant word! Asplund
