What to make of this?

Winter Berries on Super Single Sock by The Painted Tiger


Brooke of The Painted Tiger created a really pretty holiday colorway for the December Yarn Club.

I have no idea what to make it into. 

I originally thought socks. It’s a singles yarn, so if I make it into socks, they won’t be hard wearing. 

I then thought that it might make a good Project Peace cowl. I think it might be too busy for the stitch pattern. 

Maybe I should get some white sock yarn, warp my loom, and use this as the weft? It would be the first time I’ve warped my loom, so it might not be the best time to use a yarn that’s one of a kind and thus precious. 

Or maybe it is and I’m just not sold on the idea.

Anyone have any suggestions?
