How determined am I? Very determined!
When did I run out of yarn for the ruffle? Very close to the end, that's when!
And so I set about ripping my swatch to salvage enough remaining yarn to complete the ruffle without having to buy a whole new skein that I only needed a few yards of.
How easy it is to rip back mohair? Not easy at all! Actually, ripping out the regular stitches was a breeze compared with trying to undo the picot loop bind-off. It was very near impossible and I almost gave up. The extra skein would only have been $12 and I could have given the rest away to get it out of my stash... but it was the principle. I was determined to bust some stash!
It paid off. Here's how much yarn I had left (not enough to register on the scale):
And here it is completed!
I still have to block, and right on cue, I picked up my Knitter's Block kit from the post office today. I'll let you know how it goes.
