I'm willing to tolerate the inconsistent thickness and bit of organic matter in the yarn because it's just *so* gorgeous! I don't usually like single-ply yarns but Noro Kureyon & Silk Garden are major exclusions.
I really wish that 184 Kureyon wasn't discontinued :
The pattern is easy once you realize what is going on but it took a search over at Ravelry.com to make sure that I fully understood it. It could have been a tad bit more clear. It's rare that I have to ask/read about patterns.
