Something Wicked this way comes. . .


I've been a member of SKC for some time, and have wanted to knit many of the projects, but this is the first one I've actually managed to get off the ground! My blocked swatch has no change in gauge, so I'm ready to go, and have subsequently cast on and knit two rows. Hopefully I'll see some speedy progress. I'm knitting with Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair in Lupine,using stash yarn, which I hope qualifies as consumer friendly, in the unlikely event that this yarn isn't consumer friendly! The colors are fairly accurate. It's a lovely heathered lavender-blue with flecks of grey and red. I'm very excited to finally be knitting something for myself and will post more pictures as progress is made! Sknittymama

That's the prettiest swatch I've ever seen.

Thanks, Jaruba and Susan! I'm so glad I finally found a project for this yarn. . .

I agree with Jaruba - you have to have the most even tension I've ever seen! I've heard good things about that yarn but haven't worked with it (yet). Look forward to seeing your progress on Wicked!
