When the yarn arrived for my tegna sweater I couldn’t help casting on as soon as possible. I labored a bit over sizing because this top is supposed to be oversized and boxy, and I really want it to fit just as the designer models it. I did a swatch but didn’t want to take the time to block it, so I’m hoping that mine turns out as I want it to! I’d like to have this top to wear this fall, possibly to the big fiber festival that happens in our area the last weekend of October, so other projects are being neglected a bit as I work on this. Also, I am loving ever single second working on it. My first time with mohair, it is lovely!
I’m still reading the last couple of books I’ve shared over the last few weeks but also picked (affiliate link) The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook up from the library. I feel like I’m falling more deeply into this craft and loving it so, and am fascinated by understanding different fibers and how they behave. It has been fun to peruse this book and it’s one I would like to eventually add to our library.
