Alchemy Haiku — amazing, amazing stuff, mohair and silk. So light, so ethereal, at 325 yards in 25 grams . This is a small Faroese shoulder shawl in the color Spruce, with garter stitch borders and stockinette body, knit on US7 needles. I thought this would be mindless knitting — garter and stockinette, after all — but the yarn is so lightweight that attention must be paid.
