I do have one complaint about the yarn, though. I ordered two balls of this, at a total of around 250gr. Towards the end of the first ball there was a crappy yarn splice from violet back to light blue, and after that point the colour sequence was reversed. Upon closer inspection of the second ball, I recognised that that ball's colour sequence was opposite to that of the first. So, some rewinding and resplicing later, it all turned out well, but it still bugs me. I wrote to the place from where I purchased the yarn and sent them some pictures of the splice and they asked if they could send the information to Kauni themselves.
I know I'll still buy more of this yarn again in the future anyway. It's just too gorgeous.
Oh yeah, if I can stop looking at the fotos, I'll tell you about the pattern modifications I made. I changed both the increases and decreases. Increases were originally (m1, k1, m1) - I made (yo, k1, yo), mainly because I was too lazy to do the written increases. Decreases originally (sl1kwise, k2tog, psso) - I made (sl2togkwise, k1, p2sso) for a more linear look.
