I have been looking for yarns with interesting color combinations, and I thought I might have found it with this.
I bought a skein of "flower garden" and tried to use it for several projects (hat, scarf, booties). The yarn itself was wonderfully soft and springy and worked like a dream. Similarly, a lot of the individual colors were BEYOND gorgeous(a pale aqua and saturated strawberry pink were the best). However, thanks to some of the other colors included in the skein (muddy green-brown, dull red and mustardy yellow), the effect of the nice colors was ruined.
It would also have been nice to have a predictable repeating color progression, but what I got was a LOT of each color once, then a sloppy join (two in one small skein!) to another segment starting with different colors. It just didn't look good.
That being said, I gave this two stars rather than one because the concept is good, the yarn is wonderful and some of the individual colors are outstanding. The finished product just needs a little tweaking. I'm sorry it didn't work out, I really love the skeined look of these yarns!
I made my first pair of socks using this yarn. It was so easy to work with. I've worn them to bed and it's like having a sweater on your feet, non-constricting and such happy colors to wake up to.
Today I'm wearing them with jeans and my leather clogs. I plan to make many more pair and wear only handmade from now on. You cannot beat the comfort!
