21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / **gasp** hand-dyed mohair ... ideas? on: August 08, 2006 02:23:52 PM
hi all
i picked up my my mail today and received 3 packages! two of which were wool! - the first i had expected but the second came from a friend whom i taught to knit a few months ago when she was visiting
to thank me she sent this:

oh my i had no idea what was in the package and could not even wait to get inside to open it up (you can see my log cabin in the background) and i gasped when i saw this beautiful fleece artist mohair
it is two 100 gram/200 metre skiens
do you think it is enough for a cropped cardigan or something like that?
i don't really wear shawls at all so am thinking more along the lines of some thing structured
any pattern ideas??
