What Would You Make?

I have a dilemma. I have 2 skeins (about 925 yds) of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool in Maple Tweed. It's tried to be a couple projects already but since been ripped out. I have no clue what to do with this yarn. Well actually, I've got about 30 clues, but I can't decide on one. I don't want to do anything lace or cable since the marled yarn looses it's stitch definition. I don't want to do plain stockinette because it's been that once and ripped out. I'm throwing some ideas out there, so if anyone wants to leave some feedback, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Ideas for Maple Tweed:

Felted Bag (of some sort)
Ashford Shawl
Seedling Wrap
Edith Shawl
Iris Shawl
Norn Shawl
Intrigue Wrap

Or if you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them!


  1. I vote for the seedling wrap.

    The seedling wrap is gorgeous! Make that or a FELTED BAG! I love bags!
