Color Play Mohair Scarf and Wrap

It's been a busy day. 8 boxes of yarn have been shipped out to customers. My HST return has been filed. And the biggie-I just dropped my tax return off at the post office. You might have heard me let out a sigh of relief. The store is still a mess but we will deal with that tomorrow. Tonight I'm sitting on the couch and knitting. There is a new project on my needles.

Churchmouse Yarns has a new pattern out. We don't have copies yet-they are on the way but if you need to get started you can buy the pattern on Ravelry.
These are the colours that I chose to use. It will be interesting to see how mine plays out. 
 From Churchmouse Yarns
Made with a double strand of a favorite lace-weight mohair and silk blend, you'll have fun playing with color, mixing with ombré shading, or crossing the color wheel for graphic punch. For the scarf (not pictured), we mixed four solid colors — two at a time — to create shaded color blocking. For the wrap, we played with four softly self-striping colorways — sometimes with themselves, sometimes with each other — so no two pieces will ever be alike. You'll just have to make another one.
The samples are made with 4 colours of Rowan's Kidsilk Haze Stripe.
Kidsilk Stripe is a self striping version of Kid Silk Haze which is 70% super kid silk Mohair and 30% silk. The colour combinations have been cleverly put together by the master of colour 'Kaffe Fassett' and when knitted as a scarf will compliment any outfit. 

Two different colourways have been sent to one of my knitters. She will probably have both scarves done before I finish mine. :)

I have The Mentalist from last night to watch as well as episodes of Elementary. I bought the season and really like the show. If you are looking for something new I would recommend it. We also have Top Chef Canada tonight. I think that will keep me interested while knitting.
