In the studio
Cowl, mohair and linen in four colorways, stockinette stitch, size 7 metal cable needle, 24 in.
This is a laceweight yarn with one linen strand and one mohair strand and it feels truly beautiful in one's hands. I glommed four skeins before I realized what I was doing at the Saratoga Needle Arts shop. I'm striping the colors in a regular order. I think subsequent photos when there is more fabric there to see will show the color stripes more clearly. In this photo the stripes are seen more on the left side because of the light and shadow. The yarn begs for something lace, I think, but that's for next time. I've already got enough lace projects going on in other yarns.
