Hi, Dawn! I love this pattern and am almost ready to start (new baby's Christmas stocking 1/2 complete!). Do you think I'll be fine with worsted-weight yarn? I just want to be sure the drape is right. I have O-Wool's organic merino in worsted in a gorgeous french blue and think it would be so pretty with the Eleonora design. Thanks!
