More from the seadrift mohair and current socks progress
This gorgeous yarn was dyed by Rosie with koolaid and is so vivid it lightens up the dark days.
This is a mixture of some opal I think mixed with a patons purple heather that Cecelia gave me when we visited. I love the mixture and it will make warm socks as there are 2 strands to knit with.
Then I decided to see what I could make with the remains of the mohair. Here you see a medium moebius cowl
Here a smaller one. Both done in 2x2 rib. 5mm Knitpicks harmony circular needles.
A gratuitous shot of the 2 together.
Still have this much yarn left, which I think may make a pair of wristlets. Watch this space.
Lydia decided to try the cowls for size.
I think they will be lovely and warm for someone for the winter don't you?
They even kept her bare head warm:)
I've got my last skein of mohair in the dye pot together with 2 skeins of merino. 1 sock weight 1 DK.
Pictures when they are done.
Next post, a walk along Heysham promenade.
