OMG! This stuff is sooooooo soft an yummy. I have never felt cashmere (YET) but this stuff is so, so, so soft I can't imagine cashmere feeling any better!!

Can anyone offer me any pattern ideas for using this weight yarn, please? It's much chunkier than I thought it would be, size 13 telephone poles, I mean needles :)

ETA: Got it Here (http://www.yarnzilla.com/default.php?cPath=1_1209_1210) but the sale is no longer in effect :( but I would buy it again even without the sale price!!! It's THAT nice.....will let you all know how it stacks up to cashmere really soon, thanks to a friend that decided not to use what she had gotten! (Hey, C!!)

Oh, Julie! That is beautiful!!!

Thanks so much for sharing the pics and pattern too :)

I :heart: it, except for the size needles, I have a hard time with big needles, although I suppose I should just shut up get used to them, the projects sure do get done quickly!

Thanks again!

That yarn looks awesome. I think I'd make a sweater if its that soft! I just love having stuff like that next to my skin.
