I was going to title this post, "Mohair Hell", but she was worth every swear word I uttered while knitting her... and unknitting her. I did a lot more unknitting than knitting, that's for sure.
Pattern: Cleopatra from Sensual Knits
Yarn: Lana Gatto Mohair Royal from Elann
For my mother to wear at her wedding in May. It's her something blue.
I hated knitting this in mohair, but now that it's finished and blocked, I LOVE that it's in mohair. I can not believe how much this yarn softened up after blocking. Love, love, love it.
If I were to knit it again I'd knit both ends to the center and then graft it. I followed the pattern and it's grafted right after the lace at one end. My neighbors all saw it this morning and assured me that I was crazy when I showed them the "line" where it's grafted. Are they blind?! lol.
