Knitting with wool or elastic fibers has been my primary choice. I branched out this year, determined to give cotton another try. After sampling other tightly wound cottons, and cotton mixes, I took the leap and tried Cascade UltraPima in white peach. To make it extra challenging, I used 14" aluminum needles. After some experimentation, I have arrived at my knitting strategies and am very happy to say, this exceeds all expectations. The stitch definition is excellent, the light on the yarn is luxurious, and the handling is smooth and trouble-free. Lots of color choices offer inspiration. This yarn is sold in skeins of 220 yards; I wound mine on a cardboard tube, perfectly adequate for my purpose. I'm eager to see the yarn after careful washing and drying.
