My first *finished* knitting projects.
I found some gorgeous 50% mohair 50% acrylic wool on sale, its lovely, I adore it.
I thought it make a nice shawl, and it did!
The pattern I used was really simple, and elegant. I used this one: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-triangle-shawl
I also made a shrug/cropped jumper thing. I really like it and have got a few compliments on it.
The sleeves look a bit a funny, but I assure you that's only because there a no arms in them.
I was really unsure about how the yarn would look once knit up, but I really like how it turned out, its so soft. It's 70% wool 30% acrylic.
I'm a new knitter, so any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks for looking!
