My three pretty skeins of Kid Mohair and Silk that I bought at the Sheep and Wool Fest just got all wound up.

It is lovely stuff-all thin and fuzzy. It's as soft as Mohair can be.

I am going to try and crochet a flower motif shawl out of it.

 This one as a matter of fact, without all the color changes. I don't want to weave in all those ends.

Don't ask me how I know that Mohair doesn't frog well. It certainly doesn't so there will be no fixing of boo boos.

When I was done I had something that looked a lot like a really bad doily that someone's grandma had made in the 60's. I think I have a few packed away somewhere but no matter how bad they are-they are still better than this. I am going to keep my fingers crossed that when I get a few more different colored flowers attached it won't look quite so awful.


  1. gorgeous color....keep going it will work out.

  2. I also love mohair. Your flower looks quite good actually. Keep at it and it will work out.
