As a follow on to yesterday’s post I wanted to show the wool I have bought for the cardigan I will be knitting. My elder daughter chose the colour so I didn’t need to worry if I had bought a suitable colour for her.
The wool is kid mohair and silk.
For the pattern you have to knit with three strands of yarn. I didn’t like the idea of having three balls of yarn wandering around while I was knitting so I decided to use my yarn winder to wind the three balls together. Great result as it will be so much easier to work this way.

If ok may I ask where your daughter purchased the wool please? Is it a grey colour or more sand?
I’m currently knitting the Felix cardigan in bright orange.
It’s my first time using this pattern and if works ok will knit it for my 15 y o in a mohair mix.
I enjoy your posts. I grew up in Nicholson and live near Melbourne. I had my wedding reception in Metung.
Hi Jan, Heather here. Thanks for your comments. I ordered the wool online from https://sunspun.com.au/. They got the yarn to me super quickly. The yarn is more grey than sand.
So nice to have a follower that used to live in Nicholson. Where in Metung was your wedding reception?
Hi Jan, Now that I look closely at the yarn I think it is more a sand colour.
