Hi
I have read lots of posts about this "Fabulous" yarn...I dont want to be left out over here so I have managed to find a supplier Getknitted.com At the moment they have most shades in the lace weight and only a few in the worsted weight. If I decide to buy some what weight would you recommend and what should I make just to give it a try?

Out of the worsted I have seen a lot of My so called scarves (http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposies.com/archives/000079.html#000079)...they are really pretty... I made a very short one last year just one that you could cross and tuck into a jacket and a pair of fetchings (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html)out of it...I went home for Christmas and now mom has the set... :teehee:

I haven't tried the lace weight yet but want to... :happydance:

I made this hat with the worsted - it uses so little yarn, I'll probably make wrist warmers to match

I've used it for a 'my so-called scarf' and am currently making this http://www.knitandtonic.typepad.com/leslouchrev.pdf

Where did you find the pattern for hat? I have made the scarf and am now interested in the hat.
