My Experience

Where I got it: We Are Knitters sent me a couple sample skeins.

Needles I used: Hiya Hiya US 7/4.5 mm 

Blocked Gauge I got: 19.5 sts/26 rows = 4"/10 cm

My Thoughts: I really liked working with this cotton. Somehow my stitches are just perfectly neat without me trying and the fabric is really soft and cool. I think I'd like the gauge a tiny bit snugger just to add a little density and durability, but my swatch is pretty delightful.  

What I might design with it: I'm thinking slouchy cardigan for summer nights.

Where you can get some: Check out the We Are Knitters website or Love Knitting. I don't know if WAK distributes to LYS's at all.
