Yeah! It seems to be fine. However, I doubt I'll ever make a sweater with fingering weight. Never say never though! I'll have to see about their heavier yarns..see if they are just as soft to me.

Thanks KG! My husband made that rocking horse out of redwood for our first daughter. She's now 33 yr and I still love it and don't have grandkids so it's being decorative.

Lovely pattern stitch for a scarf! Nice color, orange, but not too orange (if you know what I mean). Nice drape.

Normally I don't like orange, but it's a reddish orange and fairly dark.. the color reminds me of a fire.

Thanks!

Jan, your scarf is very lovely,
but I must say I was distracted by the beautiful horse.
Your hubby also does extraordinary work.
