I called my eight year old grandson and asked him to pick a number and he picked 8! Imagine that. I need to tell him to be more creative. The winner is Rachel and this was her comment
WOW that is really nice shade of blue! Where is a capelet pattern from my blog that I think would look great with the yarn you bought! http://www.crochetspot.com/crochet-pattern-knot-stitch-capelet/I can't wait to see what you decide to make!
I STILL have not decided what to make but her pattern is in the running. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions, the patterns are all beautiful. (I'm also leaning towards some fingerless gloves, there were several suggestions for them.)
