This is the new ceramic yarn that is out. I started working on this in May before I went on vacation. I was hoping to get it finished, but I ran out of time. It came out very nice, but I haven't worn it yet. Supposedly it is supposed to keep you cool by 5 degrees. Well it is 95 here, so I am going to have to try it out. The only problems I ran into was the yarn is very "slinky" and has a tendency to "pull". It goes back into place, but that is a pain. Also, if you have any "rough" spots on your fingers, the yarn "grabs". I ended up always using cuticle oil before starting knitting and then washing my hands real good to make sure the oil was gone! I can't wait to wear it, but told hubby he was going to have to take me out for dinner to wear it as it is a little too much for work (the ribbons shows skin) and I spent too much to wear to the local club (which still allows smoking) and I don't want to have to come home with "smoke sweater". But hey, he'll take me to dinner and I'll feel wonderful wearing it!
More tomorrow, as I have an important announcement to make and to show what else I have been up to!
