I have about 900 yards of amethyst colored "Soft Lux" by RYC. The project I started with it did not work well in Soft Lux, so I frogged it.

Any suggestions of what to knit with this yarn?

I don't know by this late date if you've already figured it out for yourself. But the first thing that jumped into my head when I read your post tonight is a shell, cap-sleeve or short-sleeve sweater to wear under a cardigan or alone.

What you make would depend on how much yarn you would need for each thing. I'd do the cap or short-sleeve sweater seamlessly on circular needles, knitting the body first, from the neck, then dividing the remaining yarn in half and knitting the sleeves down until I ran out of yarn.

I don't know if that would work for you. I haven't worked with this particular yarn, and that might be what exactly what you frogged!

If you are on Ravelry, you can search for this ysrn and find projects others have done with it - right now, it shows 111 projects for Rowan RYC Soft Lux. There are scarves, shawls, hats, mitts, sweaters, stockings, boleros, and more.
