I have been thanking my lucky stars that I am someone who enjoys knitting and crochet. During this pandemic it has been a blessing for me. I have managed to create a few items and the most recent is one that I would not otherwise have knitted.
A couple of months ago I purchased some wool from our local community buy and sell page. Someone was getting rid of their stash of wool and I had been assured that it would be mainly 8ply wool. The bundle of wool cost me $50 and there was a considerable quantity so it was a huge bargain. In amongst the wool there were a couple of bags of acrylic and I am no fan of acrylic so I had planned on taking the acrylic to the thrift shop. There were about 15 balls of acrylic mohair which I thought I might try to use to make a cardigan for one of our granddaughters. I figured if it turned out not to be any good it could also go to the thrift shop.
I got out my trusty Patons Classic pattern book
and have completed the back and two sleeves and am about to start on the front of the cardigan. I am happy with how it looks but my big concern is that it might stretch or be clingy. We will just have to wait and see.
