Like many knitters, I may warn you before the rest "prepare for frustration". I of course, am very patient with splitting yarn. Because this yarn is single ply, it unravles a bit as you knit with it which enables the splitting. It's very slippery. It is VERY nice once you knit something up with it though. I made some gauntlets once (nice wrist warmers) and they came out so soft! The pattern is in a Knit 1 mag somewhere. There are plenty of patterns like it online though. Only took me 1 ball or a little more to make. Unfortunately, I didn't do a gauge swatch (back when I was against gauge swatches), so they didn't fit and I had to sell them. I never even got to take a pic of them :(

I made a couple dishcloths with it from this pattern.
