Eek!

Practically free yarn (in 20 pound lots for $25 shipping and handling)

I like Newton's Yarn Country. The shawl I made last year that won a prize at the county fair was made with some of their novelty yarn. However, it looks like the free yarn they are offering is on cones intended for use in machine knitting. (You can still hand knit from cones, though.)

I have no idea what I'm going to do with it all, but I ordered some.

I recommend the purchase of a ball-winder to wind balls off the cone. I find it awkward to knit straight off the cone.

Damn this teeny apartment. I'd go for that in a second otherwise.

I'll probably be divesting myself of some of it once it comes...

I have cones (a weaver gave me her stash), and I find it awkward to knit from them. You have to keep moving the cone, or keep taking large amounts off to lie loose while you knit them. And then you end up screwing with the tension. It could be I'm just more awkward than most people, but I borrowed a ball winder and would never consider knitting from another cone.

Easy. Knit or crochet a tapestry. I'd like to suggest a replica of either the Tapestry of Överhogdal or the Bayeux Tapestry .

Oh wow. Those are beautiful!

If I get the right kinds of yarn, I might try to crochet one of these maze afghans:
