Iíve finally started the green mohair/silk blend. The two skeins I have donít exactly match; it is hand-dyed yarn and they were purchased from two different stores, about a year apart. But the color variation is producing the most amazing heathered look to the shrug, even with the lace pattern. I am hoping to have enough left over to make at least one mitt, to protect the hand that stays outside the blankets in winter. Iíve begun to ask myself, however, whether or not I will use it, as I donít stay up at night reading in bed with Geoffrey.
