The yarn is super soft which made working with it a pleasure. I used size 10 needles even though the yarn is a DK weight but it worked. The rows of yos creates a nice open lace-like detail that maybe is a little lost in a variegated wool but once on, the piece stretches a bit and that row is more noticeable.
It's a snug fit -- not too snug -- but comfy snug. I know Kim will be trying to make it as an actress in New York come the fall so this little gift will come in handy when the weather cools again. And I think she'll look great in it during her casting calls. Congratulations again, Kim!
