tell me about KP Sierra...
Am looking at this for a top-down raglan for DH. I'd like to knit it for him as a gift for our 5th anniversary, which is in a little more than a month. Am hoping this will be a quick knit, but that may be a bit optimistic. Anyway, the pattern calls for a chunky yarn, and I think that Sierra should fit the bill (for affordability as well). Could someone who has knit with it tell me how you liked it? How soft is it? Did it knit easily? If you did not like it, what would you recommend instead? And anything else you'd like to share....

Well, I ordered this yarn in Lettuce to make dh's anniversary sweater. Started working on it last week and I have to say - I this yarn. It is soft and bulky but shows great stitch definition. It is turning into a really lovely sweater and I am very happy with the color. Will post pics when I'm done. :XX: :XX: :XX:
