Notes on Project
This project was such a fun knit. It sped by and before I knew it, I had a gorgeous shawl. The yarn is quite dense for fingering weight and yet when it blocks, it’s the perfect weight. I just have to remember that it is less yardage per gram because of this and choose patterns that don’t require as much yardage. Other than that, I love knitting with this yarn, especially in winter. It’s warm and cozy to the touch.
