WIP Wednesday: Knitting A Cloud


I'm working on a few new projects including this new design – an airy top-down pullover. The yarn is Giselle by Classic Elite, a wool/nylon/mohair blend. I hadn't worked with mohair in a long time and almost forgot about it's sticky nature.

It brought me back to memories of knitting Birch and having to cast something like 299 sts. Ripping Cutting twice before I finally got it right.

Despite mohair's nature, I am loving how this is coming out and knitting it with my pointy Addi lace needles is helping with the stickage. Hooray.

Stitches West is this weekend. I am going and making a full weekend of it. Knitting, drinking and hanging with good friends. I CANNOT wait! If you'll be there please say hello! I'll be the one drooling at all the fabulous yarn.

    Oh gosh, that looks like just the sort of cloud I’d like to wear. And re: mohair a friend just mentioned a tip to me the other day that you may or may not have heard (so, apologies if I’m telling you something you already know) – she said to put the yarn in the freezer for a bit before knitting with it and it will be less sticky. It’s not always feasible if you’re carrying your knitting around, but still, I was intrigued.
