The scarf you suggested last time is going nicely, but I’ve got a new dilemma. My mother recently returned from a trip to Alaska and gave me two skeins of this stuff, Raven Frog Fiber Arts Woolly Bear yarn in Princess Maksoutoff’s Gown. It’s gorgeous and a mix of 53% Mohair, 45% Merino, and 2% nylon. The gauge listed is 7 stitches and 9 rows to 2 inches on US 10.5 needles, but that may be double stranded and its about 150 yards to the skein. The question is, what to make?
I’m not entirely sure there’s enough for a sweater, but a short-sleeved top might be a possibility, perhaps using the leftovers for some sort of accessory. Working stockinette stitch bores me, rather than sending me into a meditative state, I’m afraid, but a bit of lacework or a simple cable or two might work. Searching the web for this stuff has produced few ideas, but I’ll be visiting the local yarn store tonight on the way home.
Thanks again for your ideas. I loved reading them last time.
