I’ve adapted the pattern for this yarn – it’s Elann Incense, a wool/silk/bamboo blend. It’s nice to work with.  I’m getting 5 st/inch instead of the 6 that the pattern calls for.  I think it’s going to fit.

Cloudy, rainy, gloomy day here.  I’ve done a little housecleaning and think it’s time for tea, a movie and some knitting!
