Anyhow. When I was in Toronto last month, I noticed that a lot of knitters expressed interest in the yarn used for the Obi scarf in KCS. And no wonder – Mountain Goat (from Mountain Colors) is indeed fabulous, but rarely seen in Canada. I decided eye candy shots were in order and to take close ups for ravelry while I was it.
For some odd reason, this yarn was particularly difficult to photograph – the color balance was always off. What is in real life a pleasing cool red turned dayglo in the photographs. I wonder if the mohair is to blame…
Consider this the start of a series. To kick things off, let’s have a little giveaway: leave me a comment if you’d like to receive two skeins of Mountain Goat in the ‘Brick’ colorway. I’ll pick a winner on Monday, June 2nd.
