Yarn: Knotty Naomi Twisters. Bond wool, from Southern Cross Fibers. Colorway Terrestrial.
Needles: size 9
Mods: I did not get gauge, so knit the large and knit 12 rows in rib sections and started my crown decreases 4 rows into the second rib section.
Comments: This wool is wonderfully squishy and soft. The colors make me very happy, especially the way the blue glows.
Now for a whine. I decided to join the Downton Abbey Mystery KAL. The second clue was not knit-able as initially written and I went a bit bonkers. I had to hibernate the project to "get over it". I am going to wait until the series is over to insure the bugs are out of the pattern, but it still nags and beckons. I thought the project was karma as it called for 550 yds of DK weight and I had an luxury skein in my stash. The yarn did not appreciated being frogged numerous times! But at least the pattern is free.
