A Hint of Warm Air

I finally finished the sweater I've been making for NKD. It is astonishingly warm and weightless (and okay, see-through, but layering is a thing, right?). It took so long because I literally could not take my eyes off of it as I knit, as I frequently dropped stitches I couldn't feel.

Yarn: Neighborhood Fiber Company's Loft (60% mohair, 50% silk laceweight) in Olde Town East
Needle: 3.5 mm
Mods: Not wanting to sew the fragile fabric, I seamed the sleeves with a 3-needle bind-off, then picked up the sides of the back and knit or purled 2 stitches together at the end of every row of the front.

I will try to get a photo of it on her...
