They became a shawl and wristwarmers. I wanted the stripes to change every other row, and therefore I knitted with the 2 skeins, alternating colours every 2 rows. It is just plain and easy knitting. To finish it, I crocheted a trimming in a mohair greyish brown that goes well with the colour scheme.

|the wristwarmers are making it an 'ensemble'|
|the many colours go with almost all my outfits|
With the remaining wool I knitted I-cord (I used my magic loom, it took me only a couple of hours to make)
and joined the long ribbon together. Then I twisted it into a necklace. It keeps me real warm, and the many colours go with most of my outfits.
|This idea came from my sister.|
|you can twist it any way you like|
Then there was still some wool remaining, and I thought about using it up. When I saw 2 empty little glass bottles I had a go at crocheting and gave them a little cover. turned out fine, and just enough wool for the 2. I am now the proud possesor of 2 original vases.
|originally just bottles of cream, they have upgraded to unique vases.|
