No exceptions for pretty yarn
I'm so excited! Look what I got in a swap with Judy:
Thank you so much, Judy! I absolutely love the rosewood needles, and they are in a smaller size (US 4) that I'm sure to use. You know how I am about needles - one of each kind because I like to try different ones for different projects to maximize speed and comfort. And do you see that yarn? It's called Feza Kid Mohair, and there's a ball of a deep, dark, hot pink (love!), and one of a variegated pink to white to pink (love, love, love!). If I were to walk into a yarn shop, colors like this would definitely catch my eye.
Now, I love this yarn so much that I want to cast on for something right now. However, I'm sadly afflicted with an allergy to mohair, and there are no exceptions for pretty yarn. Boo hoo hoo, what do I do? I am asking everyone: how do I cleverly use this yarn in a way that doesn't itch? I appreciate your suggestions for items knit out of mohair which will not directly touch my body :).
I'm progressing nicely on the Tivoli t-shirt. Here's what I've got:
If I bind off now, it will be perfect for Knitty, don't you think?
