This isn't a crochet question per se, it's a yarn question...so I hope this is allowed!
I'm crocheting a shawl for a gift, and the photo in the pattern booklet I bought shows this gorgeous shawl done in Lion Brand Glitterspun in bronze. I think the Glitterspun looks wonderful and I really want to make it with that yarn, if possible. I found it online for $6.30 a skein (I haven't found it in any stores), but I need five skeins. Since I haven't actually seen or touched this yarn, and won't touch it until I've already plunked down $30 plus shipping, I'm nervous.
Has anyone worked with Glitterspun before, and if so, what did you think of it? My main worry is that it's going to be scratchy like some other metallic yarns, and I don't want it to be uncomfortable with short sleeves or sleeveless tops.
