      Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Cristallo:

      Knitted very dressy shawlette. Lovely drape on size 9 needle. Good yardage. Splitty if you use pointy 'lace' needles. Be gentle -- sequins are on a very fine thread and can come off. Don't bother knitting nupps if you use black -- you can't see them!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Paid extra for 2 day delivery and got it in almost exactly 48 hours! Thanks.
