Mohair Fan and Feather Stole update.



Well, the Mohair Fan and Feather Stole suffered a bit of a set back. I lost count of the rows and just about frogged the whole thing. Yeah, Yeah...patience is virtue. The person that came up with that didn't try to frog back 5 rows of Mohair and then figure out just where the heck in the pattern your at. I was mad at it and refused to pick it back up until today. Now thanks to a chart I made on graph paper, I now check off the rows and know just where I'm at. I'm normally not such a scatter brain, but then there's Aidan... In the first picture you'll notice Aidan is wearing said stole in Superbaby fashion. While I'll admit originally it was Nana's idea, well, he liked wearing it and didn't want to give it back. Notice the disgruntled look on his face as Nana is begging him to let her have it back now! Anyway , I can now keep up with it better thanks to the chart, especially with a 17 month old who interupts my knitting everyso often for various requests. (He thinks Nana should focus on him and his new truck!)
I still think the mohair is strange stuff. It feels and looks more dense than what you would think from the skinny little thread nestled inside of all that fuzz. It just amazes me. It's now finally back on track and growing. I'm half way through the second ball of yarn now and by the time it's finished, it'll be about 70 inches x 24 inches. Not a bad size for a stole. It'll be for a gift, if I can part myself from it!
