Joining Band Wagon

So many of the wonderful Knitters I read daily-ly* have raved and knitted Glampyre's: the one skein wonder. By the way, it was very easy to get this pattern online, it was like magic!

I'm knitting with a mohair/acrylic blend yarn from the stash. It is an old-lady grey colour with green tones. It isn't such a commitment when the grubby yarn is being used. Then I'll shop for the luxury yarns to produce the quick little piece.

So, the body is complete. I'm off to knit the trim on the sleeve edges and then the ribbing. This is a great piece to knit during these horrible heat waves... however, I wouldn't recommend the yarn I'm using. Though a cashmere/silk would be ideal....
