He. Just wait till I show you THIS:
In a matter of 24 hours, I was able to push aside whatever inauspicious warnings the Filati tunic whispered in my ear.
First, I wound several more skeins of KnitPicks Shine and they were all in perfect order. Second, although the lace edging of the tunic hurt like a bitch, the plain stockinette is not painful at all. In fact, the stitches are so crisp and individual (if you will), I do not have to look at my knitting AT ALL. All of this leading to a tremendous amount of progress, since I can knit and read papers for work at the same time*.
*For typical stockinette-based knitting, I do not look at my hands much. Some yarns are better than others, and if I can feel the stitches very clearly (as I do with Shine), I do not have to look down at all, except for the first two or three stitches of the row.
