Cheap Yarn Love...

I'm a yarn addict, this I know. I buy up yarn with no idea of what to use it for. This is especially true when I see cheap yarn. Not cheap as in poor quality, but cheap as in $1 a skein. My local dollar store sells yarn quite a bit. Usually it is the fun-fur novelty stuff. That does not deter me from buying, though. I recently came across some yarn I just had to have. I'm looking for suggestions on what I should make with it.

First up is 2 skeins of Bernat Soft Boucle in teal twist. 5 oz skeins.

Next up is 3 balls of Lion Brand Incredible ribbon yarn in autumn leaves. 110 yards each. The label of these has a scarf pattern on them using a K hook, which I might make if I don't come up with something better.

Faboulous colors! Have you ever thought about learning how to knit? That boucle yarn makes great berets. I had some in red that I used to make two hats: a berat and a santa hat. You could make a matching hat and scarf set with it.

The ribbon yarn would also look cool knitted, I think :-).
