I have been spinning a bunch of my mohair and having a challenge to think of what it will become. It's a little too coarse for anything but a horse blanket or a carpet- so I'm thinking in that direction... only problem is I don't have a loom. So I was thinking of trying a pattern like this in double knit. I was inspired by a square of the wall hanging by Lucy Neatby

When it does come time to dye this I will want at least 6 colors- three for the background and three for the foreground- if not six colors- somehow to get a very gradual gradation along the lengths. I'm no dying expert, so this will take some concentration- but until then I have plenty of spinning left to do.
