Here is my progress on Juliet:
The yarn is Cascade Venezia which is a blend of 70% merino, 30% silk. I swatched it to gauge on size 9 needles but then found the gauge to be way off once I started knitting, so I frogged it. I am now using size 10.5 needles and so far, so good. I'm 3 rows away from joining the body.
I have also purchased my yarn for Tree Jacket. I got Tahki Savoy which is 52% silk, 48% merino from Webs. It arrived today and it is possibly the softest yarn I've ever felt! The label indicates that it will knit to gauge, but a swatch will tell for sure!
