Of course, this catalogue is going to change my mind about that. I have gone to the store and felt some of this yarn and it is great! The microspun is slick and soft (use wooden needles!) and the cashmere blend is as good as any I have seen. They offer a pattern in the catalogue for the cashmere blend. Check out this sweater.
I think its really interesting and it is knit in the cashmere blend. I wonder if the shaping would be hard on the yoke---ha ha, since when have I ever worried about that. I think I will have to go and get me some of this yarn.
Here's the (slow) progress I am making on Vintage Velvet:
I only wish that you could put your hand on the screen and feel this wonderful fabric. The pattern is not hard at all, but you do have to pay attention. If you have read my blog, you know that I am also an actress and have been performing in a show all month. We perform Thursdays through Sundays, so its not leaving me much time to knit---I hate that. I am on stage the whole time, so no backstage knitting either. Bummer. The reviews have been great though so its all worth it.
Let me know what you all think of the Lion Brand Catalogue!
