I don’t ever give myself the luxury of playing with sticks and string with no purpose- no design – no class sample- no gift in mind. It’s really rather liberating to take a skein of yarn, needles, and stitch dictionaries and see what patterns resonate. I want to set a goal of playing with yarn in this manner once a week. It’s good for the creative juices and it made me appreciate the joy I take in knitting. I’m reaching the end of my holiday knitting and getting grumpy. I am definitely a selfish knitter I want to knit something for me! Playing with yarn for no reason renewed my fiber spirits.
On that note, I swatched with S. Charles Collezione Margot. “A shimmering mohair-blend that creates luxurious, lofty and lightweight fabrics.”
Here are the yarn facts:
77% Mohair, 19% Nylon, 2% Rayon, 2% Metallic

Hand wash cool, lay flat to dry.
