FOs -- and a big Thank You!
Hi Everyone! I posted awhile ago asking how to use this beautiful Plymouth Outback Mohair yarn that I had puchased to make a scarf for my MIL. Thank you so much to Ingrid, KellyK and brendajos for helping me, or else I would've ended up with a terrible mess and a lot of unusable yarn! Anyway, I just wanted to show you that I did finish the scarf -- and in time for Christmas, too! I'm just old-school -- I haven't gotten a digital camera yet, so I had to develop my film and scan my picture before I could show you -- and with a 2 year old and being 8 months pregnant with #2, that took longer than you might imagine!! Here is the scarf that I made for my MIL, and a closeup of the pattern. It's a traveling vine pattern from my Knit Scarves! book. I'm really pleased with how it turned out -- especially since it was my first time using a natural fiber (or actually any yarn that was more than $3 - $4 a skein) and my first attempt at blocking. My MIL seemed pretty pleased with it, too...

Very pretty! I would never have thought to do that pattern with mohair, but it looks lovely!

Here's another Scarf
Here's another scarf that was a Christmas present. This was for my best friend and was just as colorful and happy as she is! I made this from Lion Brand Boucle in Rose and Fun Fur in Copacabana. It was okay to work with, but man, was I glad when it was done!!

Well, actually, I can't take credit for the choice of mohair -- it's what the pattern called for! I know that the fuzziness kind of obscured the pattern, but I still thought that it looked neat!

They're both great! The first is my favorite though. I love that pattern.

The scarves look great!! Did you pair the mohair with another yarn in the first scarf?? I have a bunch of outback mohair left over from another project, and haven't figured out what to do with it yet. The scarf is beautiful!
