50 cent Cowl

Look at what I found in the opp shop - it was in a bag of mixed wool. The lady at the opp shop let me buy just the one ball. I was going to buy the whole bag (I think it was $2) but the rest of the wool was nothing I would of used. I would have donated it back so she sold me the ball of Anny Blatt fine kid for 50 cents. I love this colour and it's soooo soft. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with one ball - a cowl maybe?

In my oil burner, I've been burning Cypress and Eucalyptus Radiata. We have had colds here and I usually burn this blend when the kids have colds to cleanse the air.

What a wonderful find! Do you often get things like that at your op shop?

I have the perfect idea for you - years ago I bought what looks like a scarf, knitted very finely almost like lace netting and you can wear it like a scarf but it is actually a cylinder that you can put over your head and it stretches out into a lovely shawl. It's hard to describe. OK, this probably isn't very clear at all but I reckon you could do it with one ball of lovely wool like this.
