Thanks everyone! You don't have to use mohair, you can use any kind of yarn, just change needle sizes accordingly! kategirl, it's not hard at all! As long as you don't knit tooo tightly, your stitches won't get lost!
BEAUTIFUL! I'm still thinking you are have the patience of a saint to make this though! My mother got me some beautiful yarn that I just may try this out (patience permitting!) when you get it up! Gorgeous work!
