A crappy photo of the scarf from hell. Mohair is fookin' hairy and it's difficult to work with.

All I have to say is that my MIL better freakin' LOVE this scarf.

I still haven't worked with mohair - everyone says its so difficult! The scarf does look nice though and I"m sure your MIL will love it!

You're a brave girl - I can't get through any project without a little ripping, and I hear mohair is a treat for that! I hope your MIL shows an appropriate level of gratitude for such a lovely gift!

The hair of the mo is a tricky hair to wrangle. They say it gets slippery if you stick it in the freezer for a while. I've never tried knitting with it, so I can't say one way or the other. The only exposure my needles have had to mohair is in lamb's pride yarn, and my only impression of that is OMG SHEDDY.

You are doing a lovely job!
I have wanted to knit this scarf for a while... just haven't gotten around to it... may just have to after Secret of the Stole is complete...
