Today I have been pondering what to do with my skein of Terra given to us by The Fibre Company at the Muse Connection Volume 1.
It is an Aran weight yarn – 90metres/98yds so its a bit tricky amount to do a single skein project with but never fear! I found lots of ideas which may also help with a few other small and perfect skeins of yarn in my stash.
With such lovely yarn I’m thinking that it would make a lovely gift….or something nice for me!
So of course I turned to Ravelry and my first search was on the “Yarn” tab and I searched “Terra Fibre Company”. I then selected the “Projects” tab to see what others had made with the yarn. After a bit of looking I realised that I could do an advanced search and select the exact amount I had to narrow down the results.
I found a few good options with this search:

So then I decided to widen my search to any Aran weight project that used one skein.
This time I went to the Pattern tab and clicked straight on the “pattern browser and advanced search” link under the search box.
Then on the left hand side I selected filters Weight = Aran and Meterage. At first I selected 0-150 metres but then realised I could get even more specific and selected “cusomize: enter a range…” down the bottom of the box and put in 0-90 – that would give me just projects that used the exact amount I have.
Using this search I found a lot of cute ideas. General ideas include baby hats (as above!), headbands, small fingerless gloves, boot toppers, cozies for mugs and phones and little toys.
A few that caught my eye in particular are:
