I used Ice Yarns Premium Angora which was a mega bargain - what's not to love about this whole project!
I love that you can wear it as a stole...
...or scrunch it up like a scarf.
At the moment I am working on a small Mermaid Tail. It is actually a snuggly cocoon wrap for a newborn baby.

I used a cone of Yeoman Yarns' Cotton Club No. 8 Linen which was a total bargain at just £10 including postage. The cotton /linen mix is lovely but not the softest. The slubby yarn gives it a natural rustic look, which is what I wanted. The garment shape is very unusual being a cross between a jumper and a poncho.
I have started an easy shawl which is ideal to crochet whilst watching subtitled foreign dramas on the telly. I have 2 balls of Autumn wind from lotus Yarns to use up. It is a cotton and cashmere blend and is beautifully soft.
