I love this yarn. I guess you would call me an experienced beginner, having jsut picked up my knitting after many years. I love everything about the yarn except that most of it, and I've bought 8 or 10 of the colors, has at least one break and knot in it. It's only 50 yards so it looks like it could be complete. I'm knitting a hat for a newborn and the yarn skein had two breaks in it. I'd give it and all the Lorna's Laces Angel Yarns I've bought a 5 star rating if it weren't for the breaks and knots.
