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.

Sue - I love this photo! The shawl is lovely (Alchemy is too soft for its own good, I think), and I love the composition of it against the red wall.

All in all, it's very aesthetically pleasing ... :-)
