Very pretty! I would have said socks until you said what kind of yarn it is. Mohair socks??? :teehee:

Mohair actually strengthens socks when it's blended with your sock yarn when spinning....or so I've been told, I'm not a spinner....but my favorite, best ever sock yarn, Schaeffer Anne (http://www.simplysockyarn.com/Categories.bok?category=SOCK+YARN%3ASchaefer%2C+An ne&searchpath=154159&start=11&total=18) has 25% mohair in it!!

The yarn is sooooooooooooooo prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrretty... :drool:

I think it would be happy as a cartigan, or maybe an blanket. Or... maybe... umm... ugh, can't think. Pretty yarn is blocking all logical thought :teehee:

What about a shawl or the ever popular "anthropoligie inspired capelet"? or a poncho
