mohair penguono

What a relief. It's perfect! The size is great and the mohair is as light as a feather. The pattern is Penguono by Stephen West and I've used Hedgehog Fibres Kidsilk Lace held triple on 4mm needles. Here and there I used some Twist Sock and some Singles as I didn't have enough colours of the Kidsilk.

 Who has enough colours ever? I like to just keep adding more. If a section looks weird, just add more colours, it'll all work out!

penguono 1&2

 Everything I knit, turns out giant.

I've made my peace with this fact. It's great for shawls. Not so great for sweaters. I have finished a Penguono (by Stephen West, available on Ravelry) and because it was a bit big for me, I had to find a suitable tall person: enter Stephen West. Perfect fit. It looks awesome on him.

Stephen rocks everything, obviously. Because he's awesome.

Westweek was so much fun! As you may know from my Instagram, we had Stephen over for almost a week, we hung out, lunched, worked on amazing new collaborations (that are top secret!)

We also did all of the workshops Stephen West offers, but the Knit Excessories was the most fun one!

Everybody's necklaces, bibs and decorative yokes were so cool and creative.
