I have 2 sets of black yarn I want do something with; Suri Dream and Alpaca Silk.
I started with the Suri - I designed a sweater for it and got 2 inches in. I wasn't sure I was happy. I showed it to a fellow knitter who said "well, I guess you could pull it off because you're small".
And I knew - I hated it. I would look like Oscar the Grouch's cousin in it.
There is a reason there aren't many garment patterns for Suri Dream. Awesome for throws; not so much for a sweater.
I'm quite relieved, really.
More later ....
