Just went through her old stash, looking for "boy colors" for her son-in-knitting-law and a box arrived at my door with about a metric ton of Rowan Chunky Recycled Tweed in it...

I don't want to start another sweater until my first one is finished (Yeah, I know...)...

Of course, it sits there in my room, staring at me while I sleep. What are some ideas to give this angry mass of fiber some form?

Oooh, I'm so envious! I have about a metric ton of girly stuff! Rather expensive I assume, but an odd befuddlement -- if someone gives you more eyelash and glittery puffy stuff than you know what to do with, well, what do you do with it? I feel your pain.

I agree with YugiDean -- you should make some stuffed animals! Try to invent some unusual knitted critters...that would be awesome!
