I finally started mine, and it's going to fast, I think I might finish it in a few days. I'm using fingering weight alpaca (COPROCA) on US10 needles and I just can't believe how soft the yarn is. If 25.5 microns is this soft, I imagine touching baby alpaca (< 22 microns) must be impossible to feel, like touching clouds... I'm not so sure about the colour, though. I ordered dark pink, without a project in mind, and turns out the pink is less pinkish and more watermelon...
It's still a little darker than that pic shows, but what do you think? Overdye when finished?

Hey Guys,

This is my first post. Everyone's Wisps are looking fantastic! Here is mine: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/medium/wisp1.jpg

I used 1 and a lil bit of a 2nd skein of Elann's Super Kydd in "Gothic Purple". Made it wider than specified - cast on 58 instead of the 46 suggested. Just attached the buttons yesterday and got many compliments when I wore it out! Can't wait to see everyone else's. Smiley

clearly_clara, your Wisp is beautiful! I especially love the way you chose to wear it, a bit asymmetrical like.
I see you added more stitches on your cast on, did you also do more repeats than the pattern had?

I wanted to cast on today, went to the local Michaels store, and I couldn't find any suitable yarn. There was some Patons Lacette, but not in any colors that i liked. Guess I'll consider ordering something online.
