Heading home ... 2 days flying to get there ... stay a week and turn back

Am flying out of Istanbul tomorrow morning. It will be freezing ... well... all things relative... I know in Canada it is quite chilly there at the moment... here it is wet... no snow yet.

Pattern Ideas

I'd like some pattern ideas for the yarn in the picture. For some reason I'm attracted to the colors in it. I usually like solid colors, so I'm lost on what I could do with this yarn.
