It's 25 degrees out there

Last weekend I ventured out of the house and milled around downtown. This happens to be a dangerous thing for me to do. I found myself in the locally owned yarn and fiber shop, in a sea of yarn of all colors, textures, and thickness. I had to hold myself back from buying one of every skein. At one point I actually had 10 different skeins in my arms, but in the end settled on just two...

The yarn on the left is what is left of the skein. I started on a project with that yarn as soon as I was home and my shoes were off. Here is the finished project, a combo knitting/crochet scarfett. I think I will make it longer or at least put some fringe on it, but until then I will wear it like it is.

I am not sure what I will make with the multi colored yarn, but it has to be something extra special. That yarn is handspun and hand dyed, and a little on the pricey side, but hey it is beautiful. Any suggestions of what I should make with it?
