A lovely surprise from a friend who went to the land "down under" -some wool from Hobart Tasmania, Australia in a lovely blend of reds, deep rust and browns. I am so glad she snuck some back in her suitcase. It meant alot to me! I will guard it lovingly in my stash until I know just the use for it. And here is the lovely scarf made for me as a Christmas gift by the same friend.! A true knitting kindred spirit. She finished the scarf while having a pedicure. Oh and she designed it herself. Imagine that!
