    Ohh, :( Perhaps you know someone with a horse. Maybe put some ear holes in it.

    Ordered elastic to try and make it work.

    It does seem a bit large for a hand warmer.

    Hope to find a way to make a mini poncho type thing from this yarn on my large oval loom.

    The wonky rectangle I made awhile back that was too small for anything, I turned into a hat and...a scarf? It's a little tube that just hardly slips over my head to go around my neck. I'm sure it has a proper name, but IDK what that is.
    Hat fits great, used the pink loom on my new 4 round loom set, 36 pegs. The previous hat I made was on an oval loom, 54 pegs, which ended up way too big!

    The poncho cape I made out of the Cheviot yarn I processed and made.
    Too short, hopefully, my niece will want it.

    Nice. Does she get the Q-tips to hold it on or is that a customer supplied "accessory"?

    Will send some raw wool to be made into yarn this time around will & sell it. Maybe keep a cone to make something from it.
