How about Wisp from the new knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer07/PATTwisp.html)? It looks like such a fun versatile pattern and you don't need that much yardage I don't think!

I have used mohairs like this and you can go to quite a high needle size and are better with higher than lower on a shawl because all the fibres will catch on smaller needles and a smaller stitch size and you not only use more yarn but the pattern starts to blur. I would do a quick swatch with larger needles and see if you like the general look. Really lovely stuff and what a bargain!

That's a lovely pattern Brandilyne..on the really wispy mohairs I find the pattern can get lost a little and the detail of the beautiful pattern you offered may fall away..but worth a swatch for sure and it doesn't use many balls!

That's beautiful yarn. :inlove: :inlove: The colors are so vibrant, but don't make any mistakes because you can't frog it.

nadja..I've been able to undo a row of stitches but got it's been hard work..you're right..the yarn fibres get entangled. Others here have said putting the knitting in the fridge for a while helps. I've never tried that.
