"Brazen"

Wow, how time flys by!

I've been busy being busy doing nothing much exciting.

I haven't been doing much knitting lately, but today I picked up the needles and made a drop stitch scarf.

I bought this hand spun wool called "Brazen" from Wooldancer at her stall at a local independent school open day last year.

I wasn't sure what to do with it. I love the greens, pinks, plums, reds to brown colours in the wool, and how there is little bits of gold thread spun into the wool that shimmer in the light.

I started the drop stitch scarf but I didn't have enough to make a long wide scarf. So, I unraveled it and started again. This time I cast on 8 stitches and knitted up a thin scarf that I can wrap around my neck a few times - it's more like a woolen neck lace I suppose?

I just have to be careful that Little Loopity Lou doesn't pull on it and choke me.

wow on that wool - nice! Another good use for such a small amount of wool is a cowl (scarf knit in the round). Craftapalooza has done a couple of lovely ones recently.

Your son should be fine in the vest. Bonds sizes are very small, my son is in 2s from them as well.

I love that yarn and the scarf is great!
