Banyan: Mardi Gras

My Colinette wools arrived just over a week ago, and they're so lovely that I just had to get going with them straight away. This is Mardi Gras, a hand-dyed, cotton-viscose mix, and I was a little bit nervous about using such a fine and slippery yarn. But it works up really nicely - and surprisingly quickly - and I'm currently making a dress scarf in feather and fan stitch that will eventually be listed on my Zakura store.
