|Here are some details about my project:|
|Yarn Weight||Other, Lace (2 ply)|
What was your source for this knitting project?
Tell us more about what inspired you. Shimmer Stole, Alison Crowther-Smith
What materials did you use? Laceweight mohair for my main color and a metallic yarn for the contrasting color.
What are you most proud of? This was mostly an airplane project so I'm most proud of being able to keep a multi-row stitch pattern properly aligned!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider using wooden needles. I love my Addi circs but the metallic yarn slips very easily on metal needles! Also, metallic yarns are hard on your skin. If you are sensitive, you might want to use a contrasting color yarn with just a hint of shimmer rather than an all-out metallic yarn.
