Finally finished a knitted UFO (unfinished fiber object). I was trying out breed specific yarns several ago. The yardage of this hand dyed purple Wensleydale yarn was too short for a full scarf, so it became a cowl (with enough length to wrap twice around my neck).

Robson's Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook is a fascinating reference book on all things fiber.
