I started an amazing shawl a few weeks back. It’s a beautiful mohair wrap and I’m making it in pink Rowan Kidsilk Haze, a mohair and silk laceweight blend. It’s super soft and a yarn I’ve been really loving working with lately.

I’m also working on a Horai Scarf in some Rowan Kidsilk Haze stripe in a purple, blue, green, pink, and grey colorway. I really like how it’s turning out, especially because it’s knit holding two strands together. The two strands don’t always match in color which gives it a nice effect as you can see below.

That’s a pretty extreme closeup of the scarf, but it’s really the only way to see the pattern, because mohair has that fuzzy halo. But, like my wrap, it’s super soft and nice feeling. The only problem with knitting with mohair is that it sheds. I wear a lot of black shirts and it makes me look like I have a cat or something, because I end up covered in fuzz. Knitter problems.

I’ve also signed up for a knitalong for a mystery shawl based on The Little Prince. I haven’t started yet, even thought I got the first clue. But once I do, I will post pictures. I’ve never done a mystery knitalong (which is where you get the pattern in pieces and don’t know how the finished project will look), so I hope I don’t make any mistakes.
