Wow, this is gorgeous and looks like fun to knit. Any photos of the shawl spread out? I would like to see the full glory and what looks like feather & fan lace in there. Loe the blue/green color way.
I’ll take some more photos, but here are a couple that I just found on my phone, from the sample.
I just started mine, in the blue colorway. I haven’t knit mohair/silk in a long time, and I’m remembering how much I love it.
Gorgeous! Thank you. Can’t wait to see yours!
You ladies and your wonderful stuff have roped me in again. I’ve ordered my Sommerfeld stuff. Can’t wait till it gets here.
While there’s still a good chance I’ll break down and order a kit, I’m thinking about what’s in stash, or about dyeing something, and wondering if there’s a note anywhere on how much yardage of each color is used, or if it’s a full skein for each?
I had about 20 percent of each skein left over–I “budget” 20 percent extra when I design to allow for loose knitters who don’t check gauge. Oh, the horror of running out of hand-dyed yarn! If you have 300 yards of each of the colors, you should be fine if your gauge is correct!
I just cast on this evening after dreaming about this pattern for quite a while. A floaty sheer log cabin just feels so delightfully contradictory!
Oh hooray–it really is a different experience, knitting with this airy yarn. Let us know how it goes!
I’m loving it thus far!
You’re almost done! ; )
yes! Almost! Hahaaaaa
This article at tlo is talking about Fashion Week trends: patchwork! I immediately thought Log Cabin!
