Also Plying Misty

Here's my Misty Garden in progress, worked in Cherry Tree Hill Baby Loop in colorway Spring Frost. This one is for a cause.Misty Garden scarf begins

Baby Loop is a bouclé mohair. Ordinarily, mohair gives me itchy fidgets, but Baby Loop is as soft and light as soap bubbles. The bouclé loops seem to keep both shedding and the itch factor at bay.

I'm also amazed by the way the feather and fan pattern tames and shows off a variegated yarn. When knit in stockinette stitch, the gray tones in this colorway become almost transparent and the pastels pool unattractively. In feather and fan, the colors remind me of Monet's waterlily paintings.
