Banff

Banff

Name: Banff in size L-XL

Designer: Jenna Wilson at knitty.com

Yarn: Over one cone (I don't know how much I used of the second cone, but not much) of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride (85% wool, 15% mohair, 760 yards per one pound cone) in colour M181 Prairie Fire

Needle Size: 6mm

Date Completed: November 13, 2005

Random thoughts: The yarn has a silvery halo and was a joy to knit. However, it does shed quite a bit (those mohair fibres!), so I better not wear it while sitting in somebody's expensive black chair. Just believe me on this one, I know. The chair will look as if a giant cat took a good, long nap in it. As the yarn is single ply worsted weight, it makes the raglan pattern really stand out. The collar is nice and warm, but it slumps. I guess I can roll it down, if need be. All in all I'm fairly pleased with this pullover. It's warm, comfortable and casual, just what I needed.
