I wanted to love this yarn. It was so slinky and slippery. It is stated to be a worsted weight yarn. I am not too thrilled at how open the swatch is in stockinette. If I had my yarn I would have swatched a lace pattern. I think a lace stole or shawl would be lovely in this yarn. It is just not a garment yarn for me. Norah designed a garment in this yarn. It is lovely and looks great on all body shapes. I just don't know if this is something I would knit at this gauge.

For all you lace lovers, go search out this yarn for drapy lovely shawls that will glisten in the firelight. It blocks beautifully.
