Twenty dash two

Sometimes I think I'm nuts.  

(Or maybe I was nuts sometime in the past.)

I had bought this 20/2 wool a few years ago thinking it was a great idea because 1.) it was nice and thin, 2.) there was a lot of it, and 3.) it was super cheap.

I pulled it out this week to make a scarf and I think to myself, "What was I thinking?"

This stuff is super thin!

I have 3 strands per dent on the reed, and it tangles real easily and breaks even easier.

I'm excited to make a super thin scarf, but...

...there are certainly drawbacks to the 20/2 wool!

And I have so many cones of the white... Ugh!

Here is little dude in his suspenders and bow-tie!  He was wearing his awesome handwoven pants at the same time and I don't know why I didn't get those, too!  Oops!  Oh well... maybe next time...
