recently finished an alpaca-mohair sweater for my grandson...a beautiful heathered green alpaca combined with a fine strand of multi-dyed mohair. He loves it...because it's very soft.

Here is a chenille scarf knitted with two strands of rayon chenille...on US#8 needles.
The cables are very hard to see...
It is a cone yarn bought on eBay.

I knit a lot of scarves with multiple yarns...often five strands...and I'm always bothered by the difference between the cable and needle sizes..
I've used the large size AddiTurbos...but prefer the warmth of wood or bamboo...
...so I made some!
These are turned of Rosewood and Kingwood...with brass fittings.
The odd things inside the vinyl cable are Swarofski crystals... just for fun... they roll around when I knit...
One can never have too much Glitz!!!
They are US17 and US19
