Wow! I discovered stuff about Mesmer I (pink silk) that I’ve loved but held in the wings until I could turn it into a pattern with Fun Flex® features :-)
The pattern is done YAY! It’s in my Ravelry store and at the DesigningVashti.com website. Wish I had a second skein of the silk, but I also like seeing how far I’m getting with just one.
Odd about the mohair. It can’t have started out as 120g/500yds as listed! Wish I’d weighed each skein before starting. Project + attached balls of silk and mohair weigh 145g together. The project alone weighs 53g, so out of 145g, I’ve crocheted 53g of it so far. Remainder of ball of silk is 56g. Assuming silk actually weighed 100g when I began, that leaves 9g of the crochet being mohair. Remaining ball of mohair=36g, so the full ball would have been 45g? (Certainly not 120g as listed!)
