hi all--I'm a newly obsessed knitter who is enjoying all the info here.
just wanted to show you this gorgeous little shrug/poncho that a friend got for christmas--it's from a local gallery that sells some fiber art.
she let me borrow it to take pics.
my questions for you are--
do you know a pattern like this?
and, any suggestions about reproducing the yarn?
another friend who's a spinner and weaver and fiber artist came over to help analyze it--it looks like some mohair, some hand painted rayon ribbon, some really thin chenille spun with mylar and some other texturey yarns.
we are going to work on making something like this and are open to input!
oh, and this is a very tiny poncho--just really covers the shoulders and tops of arms--my friend wore it over a skin tight knit top and jeans--it looked fab.
