To the right, you will see the button for K.A.Y.E – the Kootchie Awareness Yarn Extravaganza. I was fortunate to be the winner of the January drawing by the lovely Bezzie. And I received this:
It’s lovely yarn, but I’m not sure what to do with it! I believe I have about 550yds-1/4lb of Midnight Celestial Sock Yarn from Mystical Creation Yarns. It’s lovely, sproingy yarn. But do I knit socks, and what pattern? Or do I knit something else, maybe use it in a cardigan somehow? I can’t decide.

So this is what I’m doing. Contest! You send me an email at with your suggestions for what I should do with the yarn, and the winner will be the person whose project idea I choose. The prize: a set of stitch markers in a fulled and embroidered stitch marker pocket.

Put on your thinking caps!

    Ha ha, shoot. I’m going to not enter because a.) it would probably be a conflict of interest and b.) I have no clue! Hahaha!

  2. You could always send it to me… :0)Or you could make a lace scarf – lace would be pretty in that yarn.

  3. Legwarmers! I say knit legwarmers. for the obnoxiously long link!

  4. Hmmm a Branching out might look very nice in that yarn!

  5. A pair of lace knee socks would be gorgeous. The colour variation in the yarn is subtle enough that it wouldn’t interfere with a lace pattern, but would still be more interesting than just a solid colour. Then wear them with black sandals and a black skirt, or black boots! It’d be supercute.

  6. Ooh, that is indeedy pretty yarn! You could easily do a lace scarf or small shawl out of that. Diamond Fantasy has a small version that’s only 350 yards (tinyurl’ed so it’ll fit): could definitely get a Swallowtail out of it. I know it’s been done with one skein of Trekking XXL, which is only 460 yards. Happy pattern hunting!

  7. how about this shawl? just made one in cherry tree hill supersock…400 yards on size 8s got me to a little less than 5 feet after blocking, so 550 yards should be plenty (or you could cut out one of the four horizontal repeats for a scarf-sized version).it’s a lovely color–i’m sure whatever you make from it will be gorgeous!
