|Caron Simply Soft|
I'll admit that I knitted this version in an acrylic which has hardly any give or stretch. And I tend to avoid such yarns because personally I don't like the way they feel -- give me 100% wool or a wool blend anytime -- but since I was testing out this pattern, I just grabbed the least expensive skein in my stash. One thing I won't complain about though is the color -- this ice blue is so pretty!
This wasn't on my original list of year-long projects but I've tacked it on ... and I will definitely knit it again, next time in a Malabrigo worsted or some Madelinetosh. Oh yes!
