I have no idea what to do with this yarn. I've had it on swap lists for 6 months and no one seems interested. I hate for it to sit around. Does anyone have any pattern ideas?

i looked up the yarn and i think it would look excellent carried with a thick wool(or anything thick, even like 6 strands of fingering) in the base color in a slouchy purse. you can knit one really easily on 13's (9mm) with yarn thicknesses best suited for 17's by:
knit 100 or more stsin the round for a few inches, always in back loop (3-6, depending on preference)

then k2tog all around

do a k/p pattern for about an inch (little zigzag looks great)

purl 1 round then cast off (knitting-keeps the edges from flipping out)

knit a strap and sew it on-or put stitches opposite each other on a holder and pick up

sew up the bottom, and youre good to go
