It really is a lovely pattern. You could substitute any sport weight yarn for this easilly if you didn't want to shell out the money for Euroflax. It also may not take as much as what the pattern calls for. I had to make the XXL size because I have rather large boobs and the pattern called for 5 skeins, but I only used 3 and a little of a fourth skein.
I'm also working on a couple of other things now. I have ressurected the gecko scarf and I'm almost to the tail decreases. I'm hoping to be done with this scarf tonight or tomorrow.
Now that I've probably crashed your computers today, I'll go do some work. I'm actually feeling better now after another day off work. I even went to the bookstore last night and lasted about an hour before I needed to head home and crash again. I'm not hacking up vital organs this morning at least, so I'm getting better now.
