Thank You, Secret Pal!
I love this fuzzy Colinette Mohair in beautiful shades of sage. This yarn even SMELLS good, almost like freshly cut grass. I'm already imagining a snuggly shawl for fall. I love this this UK magazine, Knitting. Though there's only 9 patterns, they are all knit-worthy, and it's published monthly. There's some good articles too, about Penny O'Neil's Artrageous Crochet, and a quick tour of UK's last big spinnery in Guiseley, West Yorkshire. Even the ads are cool. Thank you Secret Pal!
I showed my honey the two men's patterns, and he really likes this sweater. Bonus: 6 & 6.5 mm needles - wheeee! Colinette recommends 7-8 hanks of Graffiti for a 42 inch sweater, but this pattern requires (gulp) 13 hanks for a 44 inch one. Is this a scam to make me buy more yarn than I need?
