I had no idea I was going to fall in love with this yarn when I bought it to make the Macchiata gloves. It's so lovely, I'm going to try it with other projects, too. The yarn is extremely soft but really durable. It can be stretched a bit for tight knitting, and the very slight halo (no shedding) gives it an upscale look. The yardage is deceiving ... I'm getting more milage out of 125 yards than I thought I would.
I love these needles! I'm using large ones sizes 5, 6, and 7 with worsted-weight to make socks, mittens, and a hat. The DPNs are very sturdy and feel good in my hands. Knitted rows don't accidentally slip off the ends. These are my DPNs of choice for this size range.
I *LOVE* this bag! It's lightweight and holds a surprising amount. The fabric looks elegant and it's soft but quite sturdy. The cords used to close the bag do an excellent job ... it doesn't open unless you want it to. I'm very glad I took a chance and bought it.
