Fuzz + Shadow

Thanks everyone for your great feedback on Ultra Raglan.
A little progress report: it's actually been cool enough to wear it.
Around the house, to the dogpark, in fact it's just the thing for flyfishing in Newfoundland.
But...

it's already pilling a little.

No matter...I'm already on to the next thing.



Jo Sharp Rare Comfort Kid Mohair in Char.
(Yep, more JS. Nope, don't have shares).

Ah mohair, my first love.
I really.
Really.
Love.
Mohair.
A lot.

Except I find it peskily difficult to photograph.
How do you capture the unique texture?
I ended up photographing the fuzz shadow.



It's going to go a bit quiet around needle's edge - Scout is going in for surgery tomorrow and I'll be dividing my time between work, Scout's bed and a pot of mushy chicken risotto perpetually on the bubble.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Hope Scout's surgery goes well and recovery is quick and painless!

See you when you get a moment again. :)
