I was able to finish up a few things though, while not vacuuming. I have used some single skeins of handspun to knit up some small triangle scarves, and one big toasty shawl.

Consider 4 oz of yarn. Unless it is lace wgt or fingering, generally speaking, one has less than 200 yards. What does one make with 200 yards?

It really is wonderful, though. I used it when I demonstrated spinning at the Estes Park Scottish Highlands festival this past weekend. It was perfect to have on my shoulders when there was a breeze, and to shrug off when the sun warmed us up.

I liked the name of this (We have a defining geographical formation with the same moniker). It was suitable to use some yarn that I wanted to get out of the stash. And it worked. I even added some extra repeats to use up more yarn. Unfortunately the yarn seems to be never-ending. I have knitted a poncho/cowl thingie.
