I love to knit with Galway!  It is my favorite yarn for keeping an even tension when two-color knitting.  It is a really good value, too, with such wonderful yardage, comes in a nice variety of colors, and I find 230 yds. for $5.80 for the solid colors and $6.40 for the heather. I am accustomed to using #7s when knitting Galway to be felted. This stuff felts like a dream, by the way.

I made socks for my DK awhile back and they are really nice. Have enough left to make a pair for someone else, as soon as I decide who is the most deserving of these lovely wool socks. Used # 3 needles and 48 sts, my usual patterns socks.
