Franney asked what yarn it was and when I told her it was an acrylic/cotton mix, she was a little surprised and said it felt like it had silk in it. It does indeed feel rather nice, and it was only cheap on ebay. The first pair of socks I made from this cone (see earlier post) have been machine washed and have come to no harm. There is still quite a bit left, probably enough for a another two pair of socks - so still no need to buy any yarn yet.
Meanwhile, the hat still awaits the attachment of its peak, but I have made progress with the baby cardi and the cushion cover.
