My daughter-in-law gave me a pattern book for Christmas and picked a scarf for me to knit that was made with this yarn. I ordered it and made the scarf. She loved it because it's soft and feels good and I like it too because it was easy to knit with.
This is an absolutely beautiful yarn. This past holiday season I made a total of 15 neck warmers with this gorgeous yarn I used JimmyBeans free pattern named Neckie. Everyone, but everyone oh-ed and ah-ed to my sheer delight when they opened up their gift package. I love giving items that I've knitted and I can't go wrong when using this wonderful yarn that comes in so many beautiful colors.
This is a fabulous yarn. I made a Neckie scarf free pattern from JimmyBeansYarn for a woman that can afford to buy anything. She was very happy with her gift.
If you decide to make the Neckie, be sure to buy two skeins of this yarn, or better still buy three, then you can make two Neckies. I had to reorder for more of this fab yarn, because one skein was not sufficient. I followed my own advise and purchased two skeins on my re-order. Now, I can make another in the same beautiful Boysenberry color. Try it you'll love it.
Ginger & Fred, Romeo & Juliet have nothing on another great duo: The Neckie free pattern from Jimmy Beans Wool & Blue Sky Alpaca yarn. I chose a gorgeous Boysenberry color that is opulent. In my opinion, this beautiful yarn and pattern were created for other.
I made this Neckie for a daughter, who can afford to buy anything. Her sisters have seen the completed Neckie and immediately swooned.
I can't say enough about this wonderfully soft and fabulous yarn that is dream to knit. It's a bulky yarn, so it knits fast. Try it, you'll love as much as I do.
I truly love this yarn. It is soft, easy to work with, knit's up very quickly and is always an eye catcher. I have used many of these colors and love most of them. I ordered the angora and it is not my favorite color, but I know I can come up with something to use it for....after all I just love this yarn! It is a staple in my stash.
I loved this yarn. The color was so pretty on the computer screen, that when I actually received the yarn I loved it so much more.
I have only 2 negative things to say about it. First off it was very hairy, I found myself using a lint brush after each time I knitted with it. This particular color also bled quite a bit onto my fingers. I have knit with another Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky yarn color that did not bleed, so my guess is because the color is so saturated, it came off on my fingers. But otherwise I absolutely loved this yarn and would use it for another project.
