i'm using filatura di crosa mille file (it's a mercerised cotton yarn). the shine and drape of this yarn is really really lovely. the picture shows a weird little bundle.. but u can see the part where I did the ribbing.. am just done with the ribbing and now have 11 inches of stockinette to go! so glad i chose a variegated yarn so that i can have some visual interest... i can't wait to finish this & wear it out!!
