…wool!

I've been sent half a ball of lime green wool, and I was wondering if any CBBers have any ideas what I could make with it…? :D

Haha, that was also Abbey's suggestion!

Not sure I have a St Bernard pattern. It does seem too good a chance to miss a good CS inspired pattern though :)

Something to drape over your hat to make it magically go with a green outfit :)

Ooh I like this one (principally because it's achievable :D )

A tie!

Although I still like the idea of a pair of pants...

How about a belt - useful for pulling girls out of crevasses, up cliffs, etc, and can also be used to make a sling for a broken arm or sprained wrist or to bind up a sprained ankle.

Stick it on two crossed knitting needles, prop it up with something totally unrelated and call it an art installation.

When 'Happenings' were all the rage, two friends and I wrapped my dustbin in newspaper, then laughed ourselves silly.

A small square to be used as a comfort blanket?

Depending on the kind of wool, another square for a hankie?

My very first school knitting task, at five, was to knit a square of lime green cotton ,to be used as a dishcloth!

Mine was slippers! :shock:
I was 9, I think, but it was definitely the first attempt at knitting for most of us. My mother did most of them.
I can't remember how to knit immediately, any time I pick it up, but it comes back to me eventually. I hadn't done embroidery since then, though, but I took it into my head to embroider a big owl lately, and I found out that I still enjoy it and can do it. I'll be more likely to pick that up again than knitting needles.

And my first task was socks, also at about the age of 9. I know my mother was appalled that the first school knitting project demanded the use of four needles; she was forever picking up my dropped stitches or making sure the joins from one needle to the next didn't leave holes. She also "turned" the heels - just as well, too, or those socks would never have been completed!

Love all the suggestions for the use of that lime green wool!! :D

Pair it with a similar ball of cream wool and make a minibus!

(My school knitting project was a hot-water-bottle cover).

Mine was a kettle holder.

An egg cosy, red with a yellow tassel on top, as a top year infant.I hated doing it with a passion and tried to lose it, unfinished, in the girls' cloakroom, but it was discovered. I did better with the felt kettle holder which was the sewing project. My mother used it for years.

Yes, sewing is much easier! In my last year at school we had a 'crafts' class - I think it was probably intended to give us a break from academia for 45 minutes! I started a patchwork bag. I'd already done a few other projects over the year, so I didn't have time to finish the whole thing before leaving school, but I remember ringing up the teacher to find out how to put the drawstring in, and my mum still uses it for clothes pegs :)
