Oooh New Yarns and Coming Projects

I have a big idea for a project that I am going to create (hopefully during this winter break) and share the pattern with you all in my blog. Wanna see the luxurious yarn that its going to be made out of?

I got twelve (I think?) skeins of Berroco Vintage (above) in a very gorgeous, deep, rich, teal color (ok, super side-note - do you see whats behind the yarn above? My new toy! A skein winder! Thank you to my momma for an early Christmas present) and two skeins of Misti Alpaca Lace in the Jazz colorway (below).
What do you think? I'm going to use the two together throughout the entire piece and I am so excited to see the finished result!

What would you make with this yarn? Or, if you don't knit, crochet or otherwise play with fiber, what would you do with these colors?

Scrapbooking trim. I love those colours, especially against blacks and silvers- black paper with thin diamond silver lines. Crochet a loose chain about a foot long, stud it with deep fuschia sequins or bright green beads, and attach it as trim to a scrapbook page about a knitting group, a project completed, etc.

<3 But I would reserve that idea for scraps leftover, and use the rest of it for something much more lovely. Perhaps a patchwork knitted quilt with that colour theme? I have plenty of yarns of various colours and textures that would work well togethers. I make washcloth-sized pieces and odds and ends are saved for trim, then one day when I have enough, I'll put them all together for a pillowcase or something. ^_^
