Comments: I have about 300g of this yarn, and up until two nights ago, it was knit up into the pieces of a sweater that I had decided I didn't like enough to seam up.  So I frogged it - Ribbit Ribbit!  :)  I had knit it on 4mm needles before, but I wanted to see what the fabric would be like on smaller needles - hence this swatch (not that this is the pattern I would use for a sweater, but that's not the point.)  Its lovely and soft, but I suspect a tendency to pill!
