Spinning Wool

A couple of days ago, I was in the mood to spin something on the wheel. But I wanted to do something fun, so I dyed some roving with Kool Aid. I used lemon Lime, Iced blue Raspberry and some grape to tone it down. I poured the lime and blue on first and then splashed the grape around. I was afraid it was going to be rather dull, but it turned out pretty! I spun it into a single (thick and thin because I am not that good at keeping it even) and then plied it with some blue alpaca in a "racing stripe". I have about 5 oz of it. Now what shall I make?
