What materials did you use? Rcup' from la droguerie in Paris. We were there last weekend and I bought some specifically for this pattern. It's 80% wool and 20% recycled 'other', which means cotton, poly and whatever was laying around.

What are you most proud of? This yarn. It's actually called Recup. The e got left out. I'm crazy about it. It's wooly and from Paris - from a really great shop. Well, it's a beautiful shop, but it's a little confusing. All the yarn is hanging on the walls and you have to wait in a clump until one of the saleswomen comes and gets you. Bring your inner New Yorker. You have to be a little pushy. The yarn is perfect for the project and it should feel fine on my neck.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Swatch. The pattern is intuitive after a while. It sort of flew for the first 7/8ths. And then right before it got to the end, I was ready for it to be finished because I kept thinking of things I wanted to try, other patterns, other stitch combinations. I found it inspiring. And the yarn is fine against my neck. Not super soft, just a firm, wool feel.
