I'm about to order Andean Treasure from Knitpicks but, being so new, want to make sure I'm making the right decision. I'm REALLY nervous. The scarf is for my dad, I'll be knitting on 10.5 needles and want the scarf to be SUPER soft (I hate wool-too itchy). I also want it to hold up so it will last (he won't mind having to hand wash so that's ok). It has to be charcoal grey and that limits me greatly.
Andean Treasure was rec'd and it looks gorgeous. I just want to make sure it would knit up nicely if I held 2 strands together with 10.5 needles for this pattern:
Thanks so much! I'm so scared to choose the wrong yarn for this as I want it to be very special.
