So here's a photo of my partly completed cardigan, made with a mixture of mohair and recycled sari yarn. The pure silk sari yarn was more expensive, so I got a mix of part silk and part whatever, which is quite harsh and not at all what I'd want next to my skin, so I added the mohair (in a delightful shade of Depressed Grey that I had never used , for SOME reason). Because I wasn't too sure about how far the sari yarn would go, and I'm still not, considering I have the fronts to do yet, I'm knitting 4 rows of the 2 together folowed by 2 rows of just mohair.
The Evil Twin (ahem!) has been bending the plastic again and buying books from Amazon. I really enjoyed Victoria Finlay's book
so when someone on the Dyers' List recommended "A Perfect Red" I naturally jumped at it. Or at least, my fingers jumped at the order form..no, no, it was the Evil Twin! Anyway, I now have the book, so I look forward to reading about "Empire, Espionage and the Quest for the Color of Desire". Hoo!
