Notes

This is a simple sweater, similar to this one yet different in construction. I found the mohair too fluffy for my taste, although the colour was really nice. In order to “dilute” the undesired quality, I added laceweight merino. It affected the colour somewhat but turned the fabric into much more acceptable for me. I will use this construction further with some non-hairy yarn. The colour, of course, is very difficult to capture. It is -15 and taking pictures outdoors is out of question. Hence one has to do with artificial light indoors. The picture of the sleeve renders the colour closest to reality. On my blog.
Update: the sweater has found a new owner!
