Thank you to everyone who left a comment. 😀
Today is a federal holiday, so I did not have to go to work today. I did a little cleaning up, and went out for my annual eye exam. I came home with a slightly altered prescription clutched in my hot little fist and new contacts in my eyes. So I’m seeing a bit clearer, which is always a good thing.
I did spend a little time working on my stole:
Miss Lucy thinks it looks nice on her.
There were some questions/comments about the brushed mohair I pictured yesterday:
As I said yesterday, it is 8 ounces and over 1000 yards. But I would not consider it laceweight. This type of brushed mohair is knit loosely on a large needle, probably at 3 or 3.5 stitches/inch for a sweater. Anything tighter and it would be too dense. You want the knitted fabric to be soft and airy.
I do think I’ll knit a shawl with this, but I haven’t decided on a pattern yet. It will be something very simple. I think.
And Lucy would like you to know that I have not turned the heat on yet. And I have the window open.
