Here it is - I like it.
I think the Shine Worsted worked just fine. It's very soft and slightly shiny, but at 75yd. per skein, the endless joining of new yarn gets pretty tiresome. Other than that minor annoyance and the fact that it took me forever to finish the second sleeve, I would say this has been an enjoyable knit.
Also, I stopped in at my LYS today after receiving an e-mail saying they are collecting hats to donate to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Women’s Center - I bought 2 hanks of beautifully multi-colored wool - it's called Andes - there's no "brand" name on the band but I am going to look it up right after I finish this - it's decently soft, but I'll see how it feels knit up before deciding if it's soft enough for a hat for a cancer patient -
Feels good to be done with something - feels good to think about a project for someone else - knitting is just so good.
