So the yarn I am using is:
Debbie Bliss's Stella
60% silk, 20% rayon, and 20% cotton
It feels quite nice. Had a bit of a setback tonight when my cable unattached itself from the needle . . . so the knitting is resting on other needles, while the glue dries on the correct sized needles. I will probably let it rest for the rest of the night and either work on some sewing or my mother's cowl.
