So sad I got rid of most of my boy scraps...they were so pretty It was fun to knit pants. I might have to make the boys another pair just cuz. They wear the same ones to bed every night.

I LOVE cestari, is sooo snuggly and squishy and just yum! Id chose it for faal/winter longies or sweaters for ds everytime! It has minimal to no pilling and looks brand new after every wash!

you making me want to buy some more cestari lol

I do love the softness of bfl but the fuzziness bothers me.

I've found that my sweater is getting quite the halo on it already Not really pilly, just fuzzy right now. so what base do you think it is...It doesn't seem like kona...got any ideas? (it was the dk madtosh()
