Mohair Warmth

While Nomee has been having a rest this week I have put the finishing touches on my crocheted blanket, which turned out about 125 cm across, a good size for curling up on the couch. Warm and light great for these cold evenings. While I was at Spotlight last week getting zips I found this gorgeous yarn, a lovely mix of wool, soya and mohair coloured in such a way that it forms strips when knitted so I got the needles out and made this scarf for a friend who had a birthday earlier this month. I am very pleased with the way this came out and it only took one ball of yarn, it is light and very warm.
Now it is time to get back to the sewing machine, I need to whip up a gift for Ms 21 for next weekends celebration.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, hope the sun is shining where you are.
Happy Crafting

All this productivity. The blanket looks very cosy and the scarf has come up lovely - very pretty.
