Perhaps my humor in the last post was a bit base for you. Muahahahaha. As Scott would say, I crack myself up.
Speaking of which, Julia at Moth Heaven cracked me up with her discussion of Warmus digitus latvius.

Enough inspiration for ya?
Thanks for your nice comments on Autumn Leaves. It was such a serendipitous project, and one of the reasons why dyeing and spinning are so fascinating to me. One last photo, in sunlight:
All that glitters
The mohair/ribbon scarf is all done. It was a quick knit, promptly followed by a thorough brushing to remove mohair from my clothes.
Pattern: The scarf is knit with one strand of each yarn carried together. Cast on 13 sts, knit in seed stitch to desired length.
Yarn: Danette Taylor mohair in Birds of Paradise, about 2 oz; Erdal Yarns Harlequin, less than 1 50g cone (probably ~125 yards of each)
Needles: #13 circulars
Notes: The ribbon gives the scarf surprising weight, surprising only because mohair is so light. It also gives it more structure, or body. Shape. And the way it catches the light is really something. One more photo:
Last, a possible neckband for Creamsicle T:
Did you think I forgot all about her? The garter border matches the bottom of the sweater. I'm not quite pleased with it, but I'm not ready to frog it out just yet.
