Tempting made with Patons Brilliant and Lion Micro-Spun
I just found a photo on the internet of a BEAUTIFUL way to use the Lion Brand Micro-Spun that so many of you hate. :P

Scroll down this page, and you'll see it.

She used the pattern from Knitty for "Tempting", and instead of using one strand aran weight, she held together Micro-Spun and Brilliant. I think she did a great job, and it looks so nice!

I know how I'm gonna use my Micro-Spun stash now!

That's gorgeous. I love microspun, it's so soft! I do have to be careful of the splitting, but it's worth it.

I really like that. That will have to go on my to-do list, which seems to grow exponentially. A quick calculation reveals that I will complete all my to-dos in the year 2432, and have spent $43.7 million dollars on yarn.
