GGH Bali - what to do with it...

Just received 700 gr. of Bali in light green and lots of other balls in all sorts of different colors, and guess what, I have no idea what to do with it.
I did a small swatch for something I originally had in mind (long story), hear this now: I've even washed it,

but I'm still not keen at all about the look and feel of this yarn.
50% acrylic.
What did I expect?

Lovely colors though - any suggestions ?

Last Saturday we decided to go on the same regular trip along the Rochdale canal (this time the bit between Rochdale and Todmorden) , basically because we've got no car at the moment, and getting anywhere around the canal by bus is easy enough.

Obviously got my knitting with me this time, in order to celebrate the Knitting in Public Day.

Right, that's how it started. A bit deserted, isn't is? Maybe this was the point where I realized it was the wrong choice of trip :).

And here is me, in the field, after one hour of walking - determined to knit a few rows for my new Japanese top (and still hoping for some public to turn up).

Well, it wasn't all so bad after all - in the end I had two ducks and their chicks watching it, a few sheep on the hill plus a fisherman nearby.
Really - it should be good enough for Yorkshire Knitting in Public Day.
