Sally Melville's "Step Dance"

Here is something wonderful to make in handpainted mohair or almost any other short-color-run animal fiber yarn.  Sally has a pattern on Ravelry -- knitted vertically and horizontally in connected pieces.  DO try mohair. Too many people think it's rough or scratchy -- maybe it was 40  years ago, but no longer.   It's lush.  This yarn was hand-dyed in Michigan. I had a ball doing it, though I changed Sally's design a bit -- mine is symmetrical.  Hers has one side with longer steps.   svb
