Had the wool needed something to knit on the plane that was easy most of it completed in the 16 hours to and from St Lucia. I can now knit the Hitchiker scarf in my sleep. The wrapping appear effect is I hate waste and when I wrap Christmas presents it a challenge to have no waste. Only had one skein of the grey having used the rest of that's projects wool on the shawl so added the cream I had.
The flowers came about because the wool Rico Baby Dream DK was purchased for a scarf but it splits terribly but it is super soft. Chopped it up to use the graded colours as required. Spent some time testing out knitted flowers but these icord flowers worked and I got to indulge my button fettish.
