Cordelia -- that is beautiful!!! What yarn did you use? Do you find the mohair scratchy?

I wish I was done with my other projects, I'm dying to start this. My Mom will love it.

I used Madil Kid Seta in beige.  I don't know if it's the silk or what, but it wasn't at all scratchy. 

Brightlights--I didn't block as big as the pattern said to, and I still wished it was just a tad smaller, so maybe try it on before blocking...

My wisp is all finished, but it needs blocking and I have to admit I've never bothered to block anything before...it needs to be wider and I tried and tried but I can't get it to stay stretched.  I used the same elann mohair from the pattern.

Helllllp?  Huh

Do you need just blocking instructions?  All I did was get it good and wet, and  laid it on out the bed and pinned it as big as I could--if you leave it like that until it dries, it should keep to that size. 

I would recommend getting some blocking pins if you don't have any--I resisted blocking for YEARS, but it's really not as hard as it seems, and the pins aren't always necessary, but I needed them for Wisp.

I cast on for Wisp a few days ago because I convinced myself that I needed a new WIP. Roll Eyes (oh ha ha)
I'm using Fonty Kidopale in a seafoam-y green (blue?) colour. It's very pretty! I haven't done even one repeat yet, though, as I'm working on my second Retro Rib sock - I'm afraid that if I put that one down for long, I'll never finish it. Wink SSS! (second sock syndrome)

I'm not quite sure how long I'm going to make my Wisp.. I'm quite petite and have slender shoulders, and that wrap thing totally wouldn't work for me. Perhaps on the bias, but not if I button the ends together. It wouldn't stay up. Sad Anyone else have the same problems as me??

I tried to knit this, got to the seventh repeat or something, and ran out of yarn Sad. I think I'm going to have to save that one for another time. I was using scrap yarn...

But I bought two balls of Rowan Kidsilk Spray (like Haze but with colour variations) so I am going to try it again soon!

 Cheesy I am in! I have been looking for something to do with the mohair I have had sitting around for a long time so I doubt mine will look the same as everyone else's.

Is there a time line on this? I plan on giving mine away for Christmas presents for my sister in laws.
