Not only am I going to give Ysolda's Liesl another try, but I made it my Knitting Olympics project. The opening ceremony was lovely but it ran way late for me (I am so not a night person). I did cast-on as the torch was lit but I only knit one row after that. I got a little more done yesterday but it has been a slow start.


This is the first time I have used Comfy Bulky. I LOVE it. It has a lovely, soft, cozy feel to it. I can see this becoming my go-to bulky yarn. Living in FL, most of what I knit is not suited to heavy wools. The Sea Foam is a brighter green than I thought it would be (a monitor thing), so I will probably include a color card with my next order.


I had no problem bulking out my order to get the free shipping. I needed to add $20 to my order. So, I included enough Wool of the Andes Bulky (Yukon) for a felted bag, 4 US1 Options for my notions bags, and enough Risata (dusk & ash) to make two pairs of socks. I may have gone just a little overboard.

I've used a lot of Comfy Bulky so last year, and still have a few skeins left over. It is so, so easy to bulk up that order to $50. --S

I LOVE filling out my KP orders. I mean, it is imperative to order up to that free shipping amount! I have't used Comfy Bulky but have sone some stuff with the lighter weight version, and I love it. It has a beautiful feel and drape. Good luck on your project!
