I'm posting my stash report a day early because tomorrow I've got a guest post scheduled.
My first thought when I saw this yarn at the Dollar Tree last week (after I stopped wondering why it was there in the first place and how there was any of it left) was that I needed it to make cabled pumpkins for next Halloween. Then I took a closer look at the label and realized that it was 100% wool and how much of it there was. Now I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with it.
What do you do when you're confronted with a great deal on pretty yarn that isn't something you'd usually use? Sock yarn, lace weight, worsted....those I use all the time and can guess at amounts for. But bulky? I knew that there were projects in my Ravelry queue that called for it, but I had no idea what the yardage would be and my phone is way too slow to do that kind of research on. So I made a wild guess. It was a bit high, but too much yarn is better than not enough. Whatever I don't need for the shawl, I'll use to make pumpkins.
