COMING ATTRACTION: Mohair Rug

PROJECT: Mohair Rug
RECIPIENT: Mum
MATERIALS: I really want a very soft pink mohair like Kidsilk Haze in "Grace" but not at $26 a ball . Update 2 Jan '06 - I caved and ordered the Haze from The Woolshack. Mum is worth it and I wouldn't have been happy with anything else.
EQUIPMENT:
PATTERN: Love the Kiri shawl by Polly Outhwaite on All Tangled Up. Something like it but square.
CHECK LIST:
  • source wool 2 Jan '06
  • test pattern on another yarn - can't afford to stuff up on the Haze
  • knit
  • block

  • DUE DATE: 26/04/06

    are you familiar with the bendigo woolen mills mohair? i think you might have said you were resisting them. i'll see if i can find my shade card. its usually about $18 for 200g ball, but it is 8ply i think.

    I'm trying to be VERY good about not ringing Bendigo for a colour chart. If you just *happen* to have one lying around, though...

    this is a very beautiful pattern - wondered what you were going to do with the kid haze
