Needles & yarn
US 10½ - 6.5 mm
Rowan Kidsilk Haze
2 skeins = 458.0 yards (418.8 meters), 50 grams

beautiful pattern! pretty kid silk haze! so soft and light!

i had to switch from addi lace needles to wood. using such large needles and fine yarn (while reading) was not a good combination for me.

this is knit flat, on the bias and then seamed closed.

when kitchener stitching the instructions say to do so very loosely and then go back pulling each stitch up individually to give proper tension. i’ve never done this with lace mohair and i took the directions too literally, making it a bit difficult to do (it is not the same as wool). mohair sticks to itself and the knit stitches can get tangly so easy. when i make this pattern again (and i am sure i will!) i’ll just watch the tension as i go!

thank you churchmouse yarns and teas!
