Re: Yarn choices
- Thanks for your advice. I have yet to receive my yarn from webs and
haven't looked at the pattern too closely yet. Wow, webs is slow.
It's been at least a month. Anyone else had this problem?

- Hi, Loretta;
I'm actually using Cascade 220 in Turquoise on size 5 needles for my St. Brigid as I like the way the fabric is coming out and I don't want a tent to wear when I'm done. I'm knitting mine in the round up to the armholes as I hate sewing sweaters together. Please take a look at my blog to see some photos of mine in progress. It's a fun knit - enjoy!
