Well, it WAS the knitpicks yarn in the package, so I've now got lots of balls of Wool of the Andes in Hollyberrry and Daffodil. The colours are just perfect, phew! It's also fairly soft, although it sheds just a bit on my fingers. I may give it a soak in conditioner too, when it's all knitted up.
Tonight, Sean learns how to knit!
