I was at my LYS on Sunday....with a preset list of items I HAD to buy when I came across this lovely yarn!!! OH MY WORD it is sooooo soft. There was a beautiful cabled scarf on display in this olive green color. If I didn't already have $75 worth of stuff in my arms I would've picked some up.
What have you made with it?

I made a scarf for my sister, who is very wool-sensitive. It's soooo yummy! :D

i don't know but i went to my LYS looking specifically for only DPNs and i was there for 45 minutes because i kept coming back around to touch it. I avoided buying it but ooooooooooooh if there is a sale card in my mailbox any time soon.....lol

I made some mittens for my daughter and I will be making some socks for my grandfather with red and white striped stuff.

I've used the chunky - I've made two scarves (same pattern) and it truly is dreamy and great to knit with!
Isn't it marvelous? :heart: :heart: I'm making the Irish hiking scarf with it for my mom. She won't know its wool either until she falls in love with it!!! :teehee: :teehee: Sneeky, huh?

I LOVE that stuff! I made a sweater out of it and it is really warm. I want to hug myself all day when I wear it! BUY IT!! It is totally worth the cost.

My friend *just* brought me 1 big hank of this. What should I do with it? Just a garter stitch scarf? I've never actually made just a garter stitch scarf.
