I picked up the one remaining skein of this at a 75% off sale -- it is absolutely GORGEOUS! It is mostly mohair/rayon blend with some nylon and wool, and there are either 143 or 148 yards in it (the label is ripped). The guage says 2 sts/inch on a #17 needle.

It is the kind of yarn thta is a strand of mohair and a strand of little loopy rayon together, and the color variations are stunning -- blues, pinks, golds, and a zillion shades of red.

I want to do something with it that will show off the yarn to its advantage, but it's way too heavy (and not enough yardage) for any of my regular lace patterns.

If nothing else, I guess I could just do a garter stitch scarf, but it's so stunning of a yarn, I'd like to think of something a little more special -- but can't think what that would be?

Any ideas?

I can't visualize this yarn, but would it be nice for a small bag? They are easy to improvise, or there are lots of free patterns for bags. Let me know if you need one. Warmly, Chayah
