Suggestions Please?

Hello BRF fans!

I'm so in awe and envy of the gorgeous projects I see out here, and I must admit that I have yet to cast on anything from my Briar Rose because it is the kind of yarn that deserves JUST the right project. I started and frogged a pair of fingerless gloves because I was knitting them too tight. Still open to that as a project idea though...

I have 400 yards of Grandma's Blessing (shown here) that I would really like to use soon, so I'm appealing to you for some pattern suggestions. The suggested gauge is 6.5 sts/in on a size 3 needle, and I think this would give a very nice drape.

I welcome any and all suggestions...thanks!

What about making a sweet Rosebud Scarf? I'll put the pattern up onthe blog as a free one soon.

These are GREAT suggestions - I actually was considering aibhlinn already, so this makes 2 votes. I'll check out the others.

Thank you Chris! I'll be on the lookout for it.
