I started this at the guild meeting Thursday and finished today. It's a Cotswold/silk/sari silk/angelina blend I bought off eBay. The preparation was pretty lumpy, with a fair amount of VM, and I decided to just go with the lumpiness. I like the finished texture -- it's less bumpy than I thought it would be.
I got about 180 yards out of 4 ounces -- a practical weight.
