I have been dying to start this project since seeing the wonderful work of some the members, most notably Shannon of Minerva Turkey.
Anyhoo, after some last minutes changes to this last minute gift project, I have decided to take a chance and use a different type and weight of yarn than the pattern suggests. I will be using two skeins of Marshmallow from Decadent Yarns.
This is a sport weight yarn made from 80% alpaca and 20% merino fibers. This will be the first time I have used this yarn. I purchased it on a whim at Rhinebeck last month.
