Once I get going, I'm relatively quick. It's just finding the time to actually sit down with my needles that's the hard part!

I'm doing an Irish Hiking scarf in this wool, and I love it. It's turning out just the way I want it to. Although the plies are a bit loose, I've found it to be a very nice yarn for the price.
