It is obvious that you have mastered the skill of selecting the most harmonious pattern, yarn, and color combination for yourself and executing it with mastery.

I love the colour! How was that yarn to knit with?

11-05-2007, 10:39 PM
Oh my gosh, :heart: thanks so much, everyone. I really enjoyed knitting this - even though it took a while. The pattern was interesting and I also love the color.

Hempathy and I did have our moments however. The yarn is very thin - a 2 ply twist and not springy at all. It actually seemed stiff to work with but oddly enough knit loosely. I had to go down two needle sizes to get a fabric that seemed the right drape. It blocked well (I steamed it) and after washing feels very soft. I read somewhere it stretches a lot, so I will let you know after I wear it.

It looks fantastic on you, and I love the way the yarn drapes. Great job! :cheering:
