Oh my ……. this gorgeous yarn arrived today and I can’t stop touching it! My mom has requested a Christmas scarf for Christmas 2006 and she chose the one on the front cover of Knitting on the Edge by Nicky Epstein.

The yarn called for in the pattern was pure cashmere at $28 a skein and the scarf calls for six skeins.

I found this Debbie Bliss Chunky Cashmerino as a substitute. The price is better and it does have some cashmere in it and it feels as soft as cashmere to me! It also has the same stitch guage as the one in the pattern.

It is just begging to be chosen as the Olympic contender for the 2006 Knitting Olympics. Mmmmmmmm…..will it be chosen?
