I have about 22.5 yards of a brown/orangey/reddish novelty yarn. It's one main strand with approximately inch-long pieces of yarn coming out of it. I can't post a picture because I don't have a good website to do that with yet. (I may join photobucket or something like that later.)I can't find it online because I didn't buy it, and I got it with no tags, so I don't know what brand it is.

I have no idea what I should make with it. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks a lot!

This is a picture of the yarn. It's really pretty, I just don't know what I should make with it.

EDIT: Sorry, I didn't know photos were bad. I have changed the picture to a link.

Sorry the picture is so big. Photobucket newbie here--the site said it would be resized, but I guess it didn't get resized enough. Also, the yarn is a little more orangey than it is in the picture.

You could use it for mitten cuffs or the edge of a hat or ends of a scarf.

Hmm...that's a good idea. However, I'd have to get some yarn that matched with it and I'm not allowed to buy more yarn until I've about halved my current stash!

You could use it as a contrasting yarn if you have any black or dark brown or reddish orange yarn in your stash. Or maybe a variegated novelty with shades of the fringey yarn. It is a cool looking yarn.

I have no idea...my aunt in Canada mailed it to me for my birthday without a label or anything. However, she might have gotten it in Spain. Sorry!

I'm currently working on a pair of Fair Isle mittens. After that I'm going to make a different pair of mittens, a scarf, and three pairs of socks.

Sorry, somehow I missed this post earlier. No yarn like that in my stash.

this is what you do, put this yarn up for now use up half your stash then get a nice contrasting yarn to go with this for whatever project you decide.
I am currently trying to use up my stash. My DH keeps almost finding it and I am running out of places to hide it, but dang it I can say no to puppies or yarn!
