3 x 50 gram skeins of Plassard Versatile

I picked up this yarn about 2 years ago to try out needle felting. I saw a sample sweater at my LYS with a really cool needle-felted design on the right shoulder, sort of flowery and swirly, and I thought: Yes! Needle-felting! My new fun thing! So I picked up these skeins of Versatile (the yarn they had used) and a needle felting tool and then...I promptly forgot about it.

I guess needle-felting is not high on my list of priorities.

Still, I held onto the yarn thinking that I'd make a really cool tri-color scarflette or hand warmers in the winter but winter came and went, and this trio of skeins remain unloved. I just have too many things on my plate.
