I had purchased this yarn in a different color before and liked it so much I ordered again in one of the new Fall 2012 colors. The colors are even more wonderful in person and the yarn is soft and nice to knit with.
I knit the fingerless gloves free pattern from Crystal Palace with this year. It is a very soft yarn, and I'm not sure I would like it for socks, but for these gloves, it is great. The pattern was easy to use and the yarn colors were stunning. Note that one ball makes exactly one pair of gloves, and that they are fraternal rather than identical twins.
I am so impressed with this yarn from Crystal Palace! I love the long color changes. As always, they have a quality product for a great price. I plan on using this yarn to make something out of the Fearless Fair Isle book!
