Willow and Ty's mom gave three skeins of Premier Puzzle yarn in Domino color, 7ounces, 5 bulky weight. And one skein of Premier Serenity Chunky, 10.5 ounces, Cloud Dancer color, and 5 bulky weight.
I was so surprised. She gave me one order....to use the yarn to make something for me. She knows me to well.
I have found a couple pattern possiblities. But down here in the Rio Grande Valley, Texas the weather is quite warm. But fall and winter can be occasionally chilly.
If you have any suggestions, please share.

https://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/premier-yarns-puzzle 328 yards per skein ... about 980+
https://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/premier-yarns-serenity-chunky-prints 109 yards per 3.53 ozs .... so you have about 330 yards of this
you have about 1300 yards of bulky yarn. I would use the white as a main color for 3/4 or so of it with the blue/marl for 1/4 of it as an accent

That is plenty of yarn for several different options -- here`s a search

Kind of looking at the Mousse wrap from the Premier site
And the Surfside Poncho

Both nice options for that yarn.....
IMO the mousse wrap is more versatile for your climate.... however read the comments about the edging .... I think I would modify it.

I was leaning towards the Mousse Wrap. I'll probably change the border.
Thanks

I made a shawl and several hats from 2 skeins of Dominoes. I wish I'd used all the yarn for the shawl (Louis Chicquette's Herringbone Lace Stitch Prayer Shawl), which was a little short. I love that color combination!

Thank you for posting the pictures. It's a beautiful color way. It will be fun to see how the color combination works up.

I love the colors in the Puzzle line. It makes great hats and shawls. This is my favorite shawl for bulky yarns.

I made that Poncho with that yarn and it turned out really good. I enjoy wearing it.
