great yarn

I love this yarn! I am making a sweater for a friend and I started using a Drops pattern, but couldn't get it to look right with other yarn, so I thought I might try the yarn recommended for the pattern. It was on sale and a very good buy! But of course, I miscalculated how much I needed and had to order more, which was not on sale, but it was still not too expensive for the quality. It knits up very nicely. And the color is gorgeous.
