Green Over-dyed Mobius

I have admired the works on this blog for months and am pleased to join up. I have been inspired by the work presented here and I purchased this blend of wool and mohair on-line just to be able to join in with your KAL!

The 8 oz of roving came as a blend in yellows but when finished, the yarn didn't thrill me-a bath in the crock pot with some green dye did the trick! I spun the yarn into a light, worsted weight yarn on my Ashford Joy wheel and am knitting it up quite quickly because the pattern is a cinch to memorize. (I am knitting up the mobius shawl from a pattern in the current copy of the Creative Knitting Mag p 46).
