the yarn is knitpicks cotlin I'm not in love with it, there was a lot of prickly stuff I picked out as I knit.

But it's gorgeous! Did the yarn get more comfortable after it was washed?

the yarn it's self is lovely and soft but there was alot of tiny 'things??, straw? I really don't know what it was that I picked out the entire time I knit it, it was annoying but the finished knitting is soft and has nice hand.  I haven't wash it yet I'm a bad knitter I didn't block it yet.

That looks really pretty! I must say I wasn't keen on the pattern when I first saw it but I guess it only takes one FO to change my mind Cheesy
