Hmmm...Minor Glitch there.....


MohairShawl

Here is the shawl I'm knitting (not sure who it's for yet...) out of a terrific Russian Mohair.

I'm just doing a diagonal triangle knit....with a yarn over after the first 2 stitches and knit until the end..like the baby blanket. It's very soothing and a good project to bring to my knitting group...so I can talk and not mess up.

It's a beautiful ocean blue, turquoise and snow white blend and it's got an interesting "pattern" when I knit it up....it's soft and fuzzy, though if you don't like mohair "hairs" all over you, you probably shouldn't use this. Me..I don't care...the fuzzier the better!

I'm using 4 balls of this for the shawl and since this has only used 1 so far, I'm thinking 4 will be perfect.

A Heavenly Halo-Type Yarn!

Thanks, Helen! I'm truly enjoying the colors...it's like visiting the beach early. I'd love to get a picture of me wearing it at the beach on a bright, but cool, summer morning. We'll see...
