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.
