Obsessed with Ribbon

While looking at my stash, I noticed a reoccurring trend.
Ribbon yarn.
Red/pink tones (with hints of gold).
Random balls.

Clockwise starting from top left: Berroco Zen scarf, Rowan Linen Print, Louisa Harding Kimono Ribbon, S.R. Kertzer Sari, Needful Yarns Capri, Berroco Zen, Online Linie 96 Cascade.

With the exception of Rowan Linen Print, all of the ribbon yarns were supposed to be made into ribbon scarves. How many pink/red ribbon scarves does one really need?? Well, at least I consistently know what I like. :)

So after stalking on ravelry, I am hoping they can become the following:

- Scarf or mini clapotis! I already knit a dropped stitch scarf with this yarn before. However, they stretch and get longer and longer as I wear them. I plan to frog and re-knit using a vertical dropped stitch method (i.e. clapotis)

Online Linie 96 Cascade
- Crochet scarves?

Louisa Harding Kimono Ribbon
- I don't know what to do with this. I'm just going to leave it in my stash but take it out once in a while to stare at it.

Needful Yarns Capri
- Plan to buy 4 more skeins to make
Waterlily Top

S.R. Kertzer Sari
- Might abandon these.

Rowan Linen Print
- Cardigan in mind.

No more red/pink ribbon yarn!!

I have a bunch of ribbon yarn too, but don't quite know what projects would suit it! So they are still languishing in my stash. :(
