I finished my striped loop over the weekend.  This is the Mohair Bias Loop that I've made before (four or five times before).  This time I used Kid Silk Haze Stripe, which gave me, wait for it...
...stripes!  There are blue green, dusty lavender, and gray stripes in this yarn, although they're all muted and subtle.  Being amused by things like stripes that appear as I knit, I enjoyed knitting with this yarn.  I've knit the pattern so many times at this point that it's pretty much autopilot knitting.  I've figured out the best way to work the Kitchener stitch at the end (Max asleep, ceiling fan off) and I did this one in less than 30 minutes.  I don't know what my previous time was, but that seems pretty quick to me.

I think I might have another yarn for another of these upstairs in the stash, but I don't really feel the need to make another one immediately.  Maybe I'll wait a while and knit some other things for a few months before I crank out another loop.

Lovely. I'm working on a third bias loop scarf using Kidsilk Haze but mine is a finer gauge. I use a size 5 needle and two balls of yarn.
