I have about 570 yards of Sugar and Cream original cotton, in a white/lavender/yellow variegated color.

What would be a good project for that?

How about some sort of open weave shawl/wrap, or maybe some baby items?

Would that be enough to do a layette, maybe? I'm still so new to this LOL.

My recommendation - especially since you're new! - is to hang onto it!

One of my favorite things to do when I see a cable I like, or some stitch pattern I like, is to knit up a dishcloth as a sample of the pattern. Sugar'n'Cream is perfect for this, and you won't feel bad if you get started and run out of cotton halfway through a cloth - who's going to care if it's not square!

You get to play around with stitch patterns, and make something that you'll use around the house. Heck, you might even smile while doing dishes!

I saw the best colors of this yarn yesterday and considered picking some up for the holidays while they are stocked. They had a green/red/white (fa la la la la) combo and a navy/red/white (oh so patriotic) combo.

I do have a nice stash of it for doing dishcloths and test pattern stuff. I really like working with it. I just happen to have so much of this one color I thought I'd like to try a bigger project.

I'm making the Knit It rag rug out of sage & natural S&C right now, I love it!

The latest issue of FCEK has tank tops made out of cotton yarn. I was seriously thinking of diving into my stash of dishcloth yarn to do one of these. Or...you can always make a set of nice placemats. Placemats are a nice, easy portable project.
