The finished steek boa



Had fun unravelling the second side of the boa this afternoon after doing the first side last night. It is now done and dusted, all the loops cut and unravelled back to where they should be. I found I couldn't do the last stitch properly until I was cutting the loops. This is a fun knit and a good stashbuster - my thanks to Mary Lou for creating the pattern. In fact thanks to all of the knitters and designers who make patterns freely available over the internet. It's a fantastic resource and very generous to give something you have spent time creating, for free to the whole world! (BTW the colours on these photos are pretty accurate compared to the previous progress pictures).

Oh yes, it's a beauty. Won't it be fun to wear?

Stashbuster eh? I KNOW I'm going to have to go and buy some yarn just for this, lol.

LOL Hazel I think you are possibly missing the point of stashbusting! I can't talk really as I had to buy the mohair for this one :-)

The scarf looks really great, and I think the mohair was an excellent choice! - if only a few more spinners did mohair, I'd be very happy - have been driven half crazy in a recent search for something even a little bit 'fluffy'. KSH is OK, but for the most part it's too fine for me, so I'd end up having to use it at least doubled, which is certainly not a cheap proposition

It looks fantastic. The yarns compliment each other really well.
