Thanks, Beverly! Yes, the stainless steel counter is nice, but better lighting would be nice...maybe one of these day.
And yes, I bought 2 lbs. of the merino/mohair in roving form this summer, already blended... there is a bit of VM in it, but not so much that it doesn't spin out easily.
Thanks, Elaine... I'll be casting on the project for it later today.. we shall see how it knits up... that is always the proof in the pudding.
What did you say you were making with it Susan?
