I've used skeins and skeins of Debbie Bliss Maya, sadly discontinued, and bought in various lumps from Getknitted while I was in Birmingham. I do like this yarn, a very intensely kettle-dyed single thick/thin spun in Latin America (can't remember where, sorry). I used a blue/green as the contrast throughout (thanks so much, Maria, I used EVERY LAST INCH of those skeins you gave me... those last rounds just ate up the metreage), and changed the main colour every pattern repeat. I think it worked well, for me - I like colourful clothes!
I pinned it out on my lovely Cocoknits Knitter's Block, and steamed it (on low heat) through the wet cloths that come with the kit. It's now drapey and lovely.
Not sure when I'll manage to upload pics of it - I've taken one of it blocking, and shall get C to take some of me wearing it over the next few days. Very pleased!
And on that colourful note, I'm off to module 2 of the C+G course. Wish me luck - or rather, wish me a dearth of procrastination!
