I love the feel of this yarn while knitting. I am making a ruffle scarf with the Sportmate yarn in "Amys vintage" office shade..it has beautiful blue and grey variations. It is working up very pretty. This is going to be a yarn I will order again and again for future projects.
First I love the willow color...it is I would call it an antique green. The yarn has a nice sheen, but not shiny. My only problem with this yarn is that they have alot of knots...I think out of 8 skeins, two were free of knots. One section had a 2 ft. section held together by one frayed ply...that was bad. If you are good at splice yarn its otherwise nice yarn.
These are expensive...but very well worth the money..there is not room to say how much I love these needles. I had another metal set that screwed together and they would come undone in the middle of a project...talk about dropped stitches. Also they work nice with all kinds of yarn...no snags and they glide through the stitches. If you are use to bamboo..they will take a little getting use to..but then wow.
