These are the perfect size for small children's garments or when you only need to save fewer stitches. I know I can always use waste yarn instead but these are handy and easy to get the stitches back on my needles with.
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 love knitting with Addis. I have ordered these before, saw I was missing some sized in lengths I needed and ordered from JBW. I know they always have the sizes of Addis I need for a project AND will get them to me super quick!! NO snagging at all on the joins and the knitting is just more enjoyable with this brand. Highly recommend to anyone.
It's hard sometimes to shop on line but I did need a particular look of button to go with a specific project. These buttons are SO pretty in person. Mother of pearl - which was exactly what I wanted! Well made buttons with the shank on the back - and the shank is NOT large at all - which also is great if you intend to put these on a sweater. I was concerned the button shank would be too large causing the button to dangle more than sit well on the finished garment so these will show off more like jewelry accents than cheap plastic buttons from a fabric store. Perfect buttons, perfect size, wonderful quality, and they were available in the quantity I needed(which isn't often the case at my not so local yarn shop) Once again I found just what I needed at Jimmy Beans Wool.
This is one of the most beautiful bright and happy shades of red! It's like a dozen red roses in one ball of yarn. (It's leaning on the orange based red side of red - not a blue base & would compliment any skin color.) It feels soft and of course it's for a great cause. I'm not sure if this is a limited color so I may order more. You can't go wrong with the yardage, the color, the Skacel quality or the price!
Am looking forward to casting on soon.
Beautiful to knit with and the color blends are really beautiful. I knit several items out of the Violets color (please re-stock) . Nice stitch definition (cables look very nice too). No pooling at all - the colors just very nicely blend. If you purchase fr gift knitting - buy extra - you'll be tempted as I was to keep for yourself. Love this yarn - plan to buy more.
I knit this last year for my grandson. The pattern's easy to follow and very well written. It's knit on the diagonal and then you pick up sts for the border. I didn't knit the stripes but used one solid color for the border and it still came out really nice. I used Plymouth Encore heather colors (a navy and a chocolate brown for the border) and it came out very nice for a boy. Would recommend this pattern to anyone knitting for a baby.
I've knit 2 projects from this magazine and am sure to knit many more. Something for everyone and yourself! So many, many, really nice patterns and the patterns are very easy to understand and follow. Every pattern is one I would consider knitting. Another must have for your knitting pattern library.
The most beautiful, feminine patterns. Garments, accessories, etc. The photos are beautiful to look at too. I spent so much time just looking through this magazine when it arrived. You just want to knit everything in it. Would be a very nice gift for a friend who knits too.
