Absolutely beautiful!

 

I have a great deal of admiration for those who have the talent, patience and interest in making gorgeous things like this. I freely admit that I have none of those. I was an abject failure as a Girl Scout because I couldn't manage the tasks needed to get some sort of knitting/needlework badge. My attempt at a dishcloth resembled a blob.

Very nice looking & love the color.

I thought it was mohair at first.  Enjoy it for next winter.
