The lovely Claire from Nimu Yarns asked me if I would knit a sample for her. I said yes. So she sent me the most beautiful skein of mohair (and I think silk) yarn. She left it up to me to choose what to knit. I wanted something simple – partly because the dyeing was so subtle, I didn’t want a pattern that would detract from it. But also, if I’m being honest, because unravelling mohair is an utter sod to do, so I wanted to be reasonably sure that I wouldn’t need to.
So I chose a pattern called Wisp, which you can find here.
And here it is. Aren’t the colours beautiful?
My button box didn’t yield anything appropriate, but I found these in the yarn-and-fabric-and-all-things-crafty shop in town.
I am really pleased with it – it’s so soft and so light.
