FO’s:

Kari:

Fiori di Sole by Rosemary Hill (a.k.a. Romi on Rav).  knit out of a Silk Merino blend on 3.5 mm (US6).  This is yarn that was purchased at Knit Knackers year ago, Kari does not remember the name.

Yarn Review: Very nice, soft and squishy

Sue: Rhapsody Mobius Cowl made for my daugher out of Plassard Rhapsodie  This was crochet TBL (Through the back look) on a larger crochet hook.

Yarn Review:  Yarn was nice to work with and it goes really fast being a bulkier yarn.  I soaked it in about two inches of water with 1/2 cup conditioner.  Once done, I simply squeezed out water and let it dry.  It is much softer now.
