I NEED YOUR HELP!!!!


I get this yarn from ebay 5 skins for $12.00. It was 100yard per skins so it was great!!!
But i dont know what to do with this yarn? It is PALE ROSE MOHAIR YARN MIX . It say this is a soft mix of white loopy novelty yarn, a soft blush variegated rayon luminesce yarn, and a soft faded pink rose mohair blend yarn.... I recived yarn after three day, It seems too silky and too much texture. This is her ebay web site: Mybeyouguys check this out..such great yarn she has....http://stores.ebay.com/SPINCITYARNS

CAN YOUGUYS HELP ME TO FIND THE SUITABLE PROJECT FOR THIS YARN? ANY RECOMMENDATION?

Hey, just found your blog and I'm excited to see what you create!!

Hmmm .. .I've only used mohair once and I made a triangle shaped shawl with lots of Yarn Overs which made it kind of lacey. It was easy to do . . . and it made a great gift.

Hey Charles! Thanks for your comment on my blog! How did you actually landed on it?

Anyhow, hmmmmm...the yarn's not my type at all. I tend to steer myself WELL away from novelty yarns unless I'm doing a commissioned project and was asked to do it in novelty yarns. Otherwise, where I have free rein, I'd almost always go au naturelle....or with as little mix of synthetic as possible. I really don't know how long have you been knitting (I don't do crochet....yet), but knitting with natural animal fibre is the best way to go, especially 100% wool, since the yarn yields quite well but falls back into its original shape.

Anyhow, as for your yarn, I'd either suggest a weaving kind of pattern for a scarf...or it'd have to be a very airy thing. Maybe a shawl.....

Hi Charles! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. How did you find me? I don't realize how many people read my blog.

anyways, about your yarn. I recently finished a project using a similar yarn. I checked your yarn out on ebay and it's almost identical to the one I bought. It's probably one strand of mohair and another strand of rayon. Right?

anyways, I made a simple fan and feather scarf for my sister. The pattern is from scarf style but it's really easy. Take a look at the pictures on my blog and see if you like to make the scarf.

Hi Charles, thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry I can't really tell you what to do with this yarn because I don't work with this type of material. Novelty yarns just don't "do it" for me. Anyway cool blog you got started here. You have lots of pictures which is something I like to see on blogs so I'll be visiting often I'm sure.

this stuff is gorgeous and reminds me of Fiesta's La Boheme... a very simple triangle shawl would look fantastic in it!!
