Anyway, I joined and found a lovely shade of blue and am enjoying making this! It's a quick knit (I'm NOT a quick knitter, alas), it only takes 2 skeins of Fresco from Classic Elite. I ADORE this yarn! It has 60% wool, 30% baby alpaca and 10% angora so it's wonderfully soft. In the skein it's not overly remarkable, but once you start knitting it, it softens up and the angora halo introduces itself and is as charming as it can be. ("Hi, I'm Angora, and I will be caressing your neck, and keeping you warm").
The Ravelry KAL is ongoing, so feel free to join in! I put Fresco on sale to make it even easier. I put a couple of Dale of Norway yarns on sale too - check it out!
