Has anyone picked up this yarn yet?
I bought a few skeins the other day and have no idea what to make with it. So far it’s shimmery, slippery and quite silky feeling. All of this of couse made winding it into balls a little tricky. I ended up with a tangled mess until (by the third and last ball) I learned to be more careful!
