I stopped in at Knit Purl yesterday afternoon to browse and check things out. I hadn't been in since it opened. It was a great shop with a nice selection of yarns and needles. I decided to go ahead with the Tivoli t-shirt and was looking at the Debbie Bliss Cathay, the recommended yarn for the pattern. This yarn comes in a great palette of colors, and I was trying to decide between the pumpkin and light blue. I ended up selecting the blue because I haven't made anything in that particular shade. I swatched last night and am only about 10 rows into the project. The yarn, which is a blend of cotton, microfiber, and silk, knits up into a lovely fabric and easily slips off the Addi circulars!
