The yarn was all wound on cones, as she'd had it for machine knitting, but I've managed to get it set up so I can knit it straight off the cone without any problem.
I have no idea of the make up of the yarn, but it is slightly brushed, and very fine. I am trying out this pattern for a baby blanket, and will let you know how it goes.
Today, I am hoping to spend some time at the sewing table. I have a cushion pad to make and several other things waiting to be finished. The first fair is coming up this weekend, check out the Events page for details.
