I'm about to start Kaari with Pure Merino. I got it on closeout and I'm very nervous about knitting with it exactly because of that lovely springiness. Regrettably, I'm used to much cheaper yarns and Pure Merino is throwing off my tension!
I don't usually knit more than one small gauge swatch but with this I'm having to knit several because I'm getting different results. It's the first time I've had to be organized and take notes on my gauge swatches.
