Spook!

I cast on for 'Spook' the same day I bought the mohair yarn. Boy is this some weird stuff to knit with. I feel like I'm knitting a cobweb. I don't think I've ever knit with such fine yarn. It also feels like it will take forever to knit because it is so fine, so I'm trying to pick it up every chance I get. I don't want this to just end up another UFO. Although I do have plenty of time before I can wear it I'd like to knit it as fast as I can.

It wasn't easy getting photos of this in focus either. Don't know why, the color perhaps, or just the crappy lighting in my kitchen?

Here is the model in the Simply Knitting magazine. Her 'spook' is in a very light cream. It looks a bit 'wishy washy' to me, I think I'm going to like the brighter color of my orange :-)

Also on the needles this week, another pair of Rainy Day Socks. My fav sock pattern thus far. These will be a gift for a friend, so I shan't say any more about them, just in case said friend reads this blog (not sure if she does!).

Spook is going to be so stunning! The rainy day sock pattern looks like a good one. I'm leaving on a trip shortly and I'm probably going to knit a pair of socks - they are the perfect travel project IMHO.

Know what you mean about it feeling like a slow knit. Even the child's size seemed like an age to me! It's looking really good in the orange though, so stick with it.
