Most of last week I was working on little mohair sweaters commissions for Blythe. A customer had requests these so I set out to work. I happen to have some mohair yarn sitting around from ages ago so I recently made a few for my shop and a lot of people seem to like them. I haven’t knitted my Blythe sweaters with mohair since I first opened my shop last year which wasn’t so popular then and my pattern has improved a lot. Knit a shit ton of them and slowly made alterations until I was satisfied. It’s nice that I almost always knit in front of the tv, so it’s quite leisure for me. No stress, I can take my time with them and finish with they finish.
Sweaters are probably my thing for Blythe, I’m not sure if I will venture to other items. I kind of want to but I’m lazy also. LOL Creating patterns are so much work, along with trail & error. I am however interested in making mini items like scarf, leggings, & cardigan coats.
My Lulu in the photo is always badly dressed because I’m lazy to put her shoes on for casual photos. LOL
I’m quite happy with the way they turned out, much better then any mohair sweaters previously. the request was for longer then my usually extra long sleeves are slightly more fitted. I think one of the reasons I didn’t like knitting mohair sweaters before was because they always ended up looking too oversized vs. fingering weight. I will knit all mohair this way henceforth. The other requirement was that it all be in light/pastel shades excluding yellow/orange. Anyway, I know, everyone knows, mint & lilac is the best! Who needs yellow? I took 1 skein of mohair yarn (280m) and split them into the mini hanks that I always do for Blythe Sweater batches and these are what I ended up with along with a little cream left over to match with.
After the six, I still had some left over yarn so I created some random/multi color ones that turned out quite nice. I might consider knitting some of these in small batches in the future. Overall, I had a lot of fun knitting these. Now it’s time to take a break and knit myself a new pair of socks!
