 Soft and light

I just finished knitting a shawl for my mother. She is 92 and gets cold in the summer with the ac in church other places. The yarn is very soft and light weight. No itching which is what appealed to me from a previous review (thank you for that information) and they are correct. I use a size 17 needle and created a very loose knit. I used a pattern that calls for baby suri yarn that starts with ruffles and end with ruffles. very easy pattern. purchased elsewhere but they did not have the yarn and jimmy bean had the yarn. Glad I found your site. I am going to make a few scarfs for gifts but use a smaller needle size. I did find the yarn a bit difficult or maybe I should say slow to knit only because the fibers were fluffy but I think it is worth the extra time it took. I had to unravel it some and if your careful can be done but be careful and take your time. My puppy got caught in the yarn and tangled it all to H... and I thought when I looked at the tangles I would never get it straightened out but with some time I was able to roll it up. Made sure I did not leave it on my chair after that experience. I think a throw out of this yarn would be so soft, warm and lite I would never want to get out from under it. I am not a skilled knitter and it takes me time but if I can make something with a simple pattern I like to use good yarn and make my time worth the effort and the gift something worth keeping.
