What's with all the hype?

Do you ever get caught up in the hype about a knitting product or pattern? I must admit to having leapt happily on lots of bandwagons, mostly with happy results. Sometimes I wonder "What's with all the hype?" (Handmaiden Sea Silk, February Lady Sweater-only my personal opinions!)

My latest leap stemmed from reading all about the Wollmeise phenomenon. I've been seeing these yarns mentioned everywhere, but hadn't seen the yarn. So I bought two skeins on eBay (shh... don't tell anyone, the exclusivity police might come and get me.)

Now I understand:

It's rather lovely stuff, this.

Wasn't the opening ceremony wonderful? How will we match that in London in 2012?

Hey Gil, I was going to ask if your WIP was Susie but then I read down and found it was. I would love to knit that hoodie for my daughter. How are you liking it so far?
