Yarn for sweater

What yarn do you think is good for a sweater? Pattern wants Heavy Worsted (Bulky?). Calls for Wool.
I don't think I really like wool. Isn't it heavy and can't it get itchy?

Randy is right. The Oceans Waves scarf is a lot of fun to knit. It is so whimsical.

Nice and Easy does it!

This is one of my favorite no brainer patterns. It's so nice to knit on automatic pilot yet achieve something that has great textural detail.

Rjcb3's Scarf Exchange Pattern - Completed

When I saw the "Rustic Scarf" that Robert created for the scarf exchange, I fell in love with it. When looking at it, I envisioned being at a New England ski resort in the 1940's.

Average age of members?

For a number of reasons I got to thinking about ages today - and I've been trying to remember whether or not anyone has done the "How old are you?" bit here at MWK.
