This is made with just a wee bit over 2 skeins of HandMaiden's Lady Godiva. I held together with it Drops/Garnstudio "Glitter" in a copper color. It's very fine, 10grams gives about 700 yards, so I only needed one spool. The effect really is like copper glitter was sprinkled on it, all subtly sparkly like. I knit it on 6s, did one less increase section and 2 more straight sections. I love this yarn. This is the yarn that I returned a pair of jeans, sold some of my old yarn, and used my cell phone rebate for. I have just under 2 skeins remaining, think I'll do the Perfect Periwinkle top from Fitted Knits.

just noticed with this pictures, i've gotten a little bit . . . heftier lately! i'm at work. working hard :teehee:

Thanks you guys. :hug: I love it and am wearing it right now.
Well, I'm not exactly hefty, just heftiER. I've gained about 10 pounds over the past few years, and now my clothes are too tight. Look, you can see the quarters in my pocket in that pic!

Oooh, that looks nice! I'm jealous, I SO want to make one with Lady Godiva but it's out of my budget for now.

I like the sprinkly effect of the copper thread, very subtle!
