One-skein Bamboo Blues Solved

Just one skein of fancy purple oh-so-soft bamboo yarn. What's a girl to do? Set it on the coffee table and contemplate it for a month or two. Not enough for socks. Too nice to serve as a cat toy (thus we remove it from the cat and put it back on the coffee table). It came to me in a flash of pain. Really. Migraine pain. The perfect use of this super soft, but decadently priced yarn would be a neck pillow! One that can accommodate ice wrapped in a washcloth. I started with eyeleted rib for a ribbon drawstring at each end, then will pick up the cast-on and cast-off to add a little lace at each end. And if I have enough yarn left I can make an eye mask for the full anti-migraine experience.

And yet another of your marvelously quirky projects is born. That yarn really is gorgeous.

What a great idea and beautiful yarn. When your handed lemons make lemonade (raspberry lemonade)!

Clara looks possitively put out! She liked the cat toy idea much better! What in the world is she going to do with a neck pillow???

Good idea - although the yarn is already working well as cat entertainment :)

What a luxurious idea! Maybe you can use the extra to make Clara a pillow of her own... hope you aren't getting too many migraines from the move.
