I am not great at knitting or crochet, but I really enjoy doing them.
Right now I'm making a simple black and silver-grey striped travel rug for my housemate, just triple crochet stitch with dc edging. The wool is synthetic baby yarn, very cheap and not very soft, but Irish is not the 'snuggly' type, lol, and I figure sturdier yarn might seem a bit more 'manly'.
My next project is a similar rug in soft cuddly wool and pretty colours - this one for Daughter, ha.
She actually wants a mohair sweater with broad stripes.. anyone got a pattern/advice for knit or crochet for that? I have never done a sweater, or anything in mohair.. I'm imagining it's rather hard to work with?
