The knitted sample is Berocco Peruvia. I am planning a cardigan to be knit on the bias. To break up the solid color a little, every 10 rows or so I thought I would knit a row of Green Mountain Spinnery mohair. It is the darker ball, color claret. It has great little orange flecks in it that give it a little life.

Even so, it seemed a little flat so I looked through my fiber collection and came up with two balls of Targhee from Susan's Spinning bunny in the Chocolate Covered Cherries colorway. I do not think Susan sells targhee anymore. It is spongey and not that good for socks, a friend told me, but I love it plied with the Green Mountain. I am still working out how to set up the sweater and waiting for some more size 8 needles in the mail.

Good Morning Ms Pearlbuttons
Your blog is looking very nice. Very nice indeed. And that is a grand idea to add a hint of something different every few rows.

The banjo huh! Well done you. In another life I was a viola player and sometimes now think the ukulele would be a nice sit down easy instrument to play. One day.

We'll look forward to hearing you play on your blog.

Gorgeous colours - I can't wait to see the cardigan. (And I was given my very own ukelele for Christmas!)
