Thankyou for the confidence boost Salmonmac . I had another look at cardigans and found a couple I would like to try. I bought some mohair boucle wool on special a while back which I was saving for a cardigan but after looking at how much I need for the patterns Im looking at Im coming up about 3 balls short (or 400 yards), I'll check the store I bought them at for more but I think they were on sale because they were no longer making this lot. No need to despair, I will buy some more wool for a cardigan when I see another bargin. For now I would still like to do something with this mohair boulce, perhaps a shawl with some lacy stitches, or maybe I can try out my circulars and make a beanie and arrgh ...dare I say it? A matching scarf. Would 3mm be too small for this type of wool? I also have 3 rather small balls thicker white boulce which would be good for a small project so Im still open to pattern suggestions.
