What to do with 70 yards of one-of-a-kind thick-and-thin handspun wool?  In this case, I used a circular US 11 needle, cast on about 50 stitches, and started knitting.  I did alternating rows with SWTC Karaoke (soysilk/wool, color lavender rose) because I wasn't sure I'd have enough, and knit until it was 4.5 inches wide (it's about 25 inches long).  I did simple buttonholes at one end, throwing them in randomly (there are 8 total).  I had enough left over to crochet up 8 rosettes, four of which are on the neckwarmer here, and I used a little leftover Cascade 220 for the leaves.  The big one is just decoration, and the small ones are buttons.  With the 8 buttonholes to choose from, this will fit most adults.
