It seems that March is off to a roaring start! We got about 5 inches of snow overnight, with more in the forecast for the weekend. Although, all this snow has not hampered the bird’s enthusiasm as they were singing loud and long this morning!
I have not done a Fiber Friday post in some time, and the mood is striking me that this is just what I need to share today!
First up, it seems I am working on becoming a Mohair Silk Knitting Jedi. Yes, this year just might be the Year of Mohair Knitting! My second mohair project of 2019 is underway, and I am cruising along. There was a slight hiccup when 5 rounds in I discovered that yes, I have twisted the damned cast on and have a Möbius sweater started. Now, if you know anything you know there is no “ripping back and starting over” with mohair. My solution? I dropped the last stitch of the round down to the cast on, untwisted the twist, and carefully purled up the laddered yarn. It shows a bit now, but once I have the ends woven in, I think it will be barely visible!
Thank goodness for that Mohair Halo!! This project is bringing me unbelievable joy – the color and the fabric are wonders!! This is exactly what my Tegna wants to be!
Next, today I will be ironing all these fat quarters to begin the process of cutting out squares for assembly! Yes, I am beginning my 100-day project today and hopefully I will have a quilt top done by June 9th.
I also picked up more fabric to make another 1 Hour Top!
So, March will be full of sewing and fluffy knitting! And, hopefully soon, some spring-like weather!!
Happy Friday all! See you back here next week!
I honestly can’t even tell where you made the fix. Three cheers for the mohair halo!
Beautiful fluffy knitting, and I certainly can’t see the fix! I didn’t even know there was a fix for a twisted cast on, so I’m glad to learn about it … but I’m not going to try it on mohair. I’ll leave that to the Mohair Knitting Jedi!
Nice save on your Tegna! Cheers to the weekend.
Oh, my, that is SO SO SO SO pretty!
March = Hope! and you, my friend, are it!
Look at you GO! No one will ever, ever notice that fix. 🙂 (What fix???) You are, indeed, a Mohair Silk Knitting Jedi!!!
Kat If I go to your sponsor and buy they yarn do you get a little something back?
Hi Kathy! No, I do not get any commission from it. At best I might get 50 cents to a dollar for you clicking the ad, but you buying something has no impact.
YOU are off to a roar!! That fix is ingenious. The color is simply amazing and I look forward to seeing your projects come to fruition!
I admire your tenacity with mohair. There is indeed no frogging when that’s your fiber! It looks fine and will completely disappear as you go along.
wispy beauty!! I love the vibrant red (it looks red over here). I hope you had a fantastic weekend and are ready for the Monday madness.
