In the studio - mohair and linen



Capelet, mohair and linen, stockinette stitch, size 4 cable needle, 24 in.

I've tried this combination of yarns on about three new projects, all having failed. Now I think I have the winning formula. It's almost complete after a big gob of work on it this weekend.

I have a large ball of yarn that isn't enough to make the vest I want to make out of it, and I've been looking for years for something to pair with it, but it's an odd color. That capelet has several yarns that would pair well with it. Can you tell me what yarns you used?

The most orangey are Kidlin

and one of the lighter color ones is called Venezia by Lang Yarns

I lost the label on the other one.
