So what are you going to make with it?

I got mine about a month ago --- I got "Mr Brown", a sort of coppery color, adn sentit off to Martha (Carzycalico kitty) as that is the same color SHE got. That way she'll have more than one skein to work with!

I got mine a few weeks ago as well, and it was the Mr. Brown color and I'm stumped as to what it wants to be. I hope someday it will tell me.

I got mine about a week ago. I got that copper brown color too. Yah, no clue what to do with it.
I received patterns too, but I opened them up and left them all over my kitchen island and when I came home from work they were gone! sigh. My husband is a cleaner upper. (God bless him) Were they any good? Could you make anything with one skein?

No, there wansn't a pattern for just one skein...there was as scarf (takes 2 skiens) a bag and a poncho or shawl (that's what I got anyway)


Not sure what I'm going to do with mine, I may break down and buy one more skien so that I can make a scarf, or I might trim a cheap pillow with it for my sister's new place (she's a fan of blue)...hmm.

Trimming a pillow is a great idea! I'm sure that one skein would do it. You could use fairly large needles.

I got the teal color too but I think I would've preferred the copper one. I have no idea what to do with it. They want you to go out and buy another skein of yarn so that you can make something with it. ;)
