I'm liking the shawl !
The pattern calls for a size 13 needle which I didn't have. I had a 50% off coupon for Michael's crafts and purchased a size 15 thinking that's what I needed. When I looked at the pattern again I just shrugged my shoulders because my gauge is always tight and the needles have a really pointy edge which is good for working with this type of yarn. Besides the yarn being hairy, there are little curly loops so I need a needle that is pointy and sleek. -- It's working.
This project is going really fast but looking at what I have so far I'm sure my mom will love this shawl. It kind of looks like teddy bear hair or french poodle hair but the painted colors make it really pretty. -- This doesn't reflect too much in the photo but take my word for it, it's nice.
So, just thought I'd keep you updated on my mohair shawl adventure.
P.S. Does anyone know, does mohair block okay. I'm feeling a bit queasy about blocking this thing.
