Qiviuk?

Ok I have been given a single ball of blue qiviuk. I have no idea where my friend got it all I know is that it costs an obscene amount of money. Has anyone worked with this stuff before?

Fingerless gloves

Well I liked the Knucks on knitty but did not like the thickness of the fabric. So I made a bulky pair out of Malabrigo on 6's. They turned out pretty well though next time I'll make the pinkies smaller. I keep accumulating small balls of malabrigo as my sock pattern and mitten patterns leave about 10 ercent of the skein. I'll have to do a scrap project.

The Eternal Hooded Sweater

Ok I know I am exagerating in reality I've worked on it since the beginning of december and haven't touched it since christmas. I need to do the sleeves. This is my first sweater and I altered the pattern from the Stitch and Bitch hoodie but wish the arms were more shaped. My man is a rather big fellow so its 50 inches aroundand 28 inches high. The hood has a cute pick up split a few inches before the shoulder seams that I like. For future refence while I love malabrigo Merino I'm upset that the patterning changed when I stepped out of the round to split for the arm holes.
