Yarn: Araucania Patagonia 100% cotton in color 206, a blend of purple, pink, and sort-of-orange. I got these two skeins (105 yd each) during my knitting group's latest yarn exchange, and I'm so glad I did! The colors are gorgeous and I'm enjoying working with this bulky cotton. It knits up fast, that's for sure. Needles: US 8 dpns Pattern: improvised and still in abbreviated notes form; a (free) full version will be coming soon after I knit up a few more samples in wool to test it out.
