My first attempt at this was such a success and I knew the hubby's other sister was sure to want one too so I cast this on the weekend before Christmas and finished it today. This one was done with one and a half skeins of a DK wool/mohair blend (330m/100gr). The label is all Russian so that's about all I could get from it. It was lovely stuff, and the color green is beautiful. I did this one on US 10.5 needles. I still don't have a good place to get pictures of such large things. I laid it out to block on a wool rug in a room in the basement. It has a bit of a sheen which made taking a really close up shot kind of difficult.
