I used Cascade BFL (100% Blue Faced Leicester Wool) and a US#8 (5.0 mm) needle.
For comparison, here’s both my RS and WS .
I love the way the RS looks! It was a complete surprise to me because I thought it was rather ordinary and I didn’t think much of it until I made this swatch.
I also love how textured it is.
If I had this on, I’d be caught just staring at it maybe a million times a day. Or just rubbing it between two fingers. It’s really that beautiful.
