Berroco - Blackstone Tweed
Tweed is so cool 5 out of 5
This season around here, tweedy tweeds are in--seeing tweed sweaters everywhere. Blackstone tweed may be going away, gets harder to find and so I keep buying it because it's fun & feels good to knit with, and looks great on when the knitting is done. It's a lot like Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, but less easy to tear, tho' not made in USA, & maybe not as soft which isn't necessarily bad. Works to the same gauge, and a few less yards per ball but better price. Very satisfying yarn.

Rowan - Denim
beautiful blues Denim 4 out of 5
Had quite a time with this yarn while knitting it because the powdery indigo dye got on hands, clothes, needles, and you breathed it too. Not permanent except a bit on bamboo needles. But it was a beautiful color, difficult to find, really indigo. It worked up well in the pattern which was specifically for this yarn, and following instructions for pre-shrinking worked well. The resulting cabley pullover surpassed expectations, with beautiful stitch definition.

Cascade - Luna
follow up 4 out of 5
Following up on a sweater from Cascade Lima, I liked the texture and working with it, but the sale yarn had lots of knots & as a twined single ply, not so good for splicing, so joins were tied at end of rows, and I needed more yarn. But the sweater was so successful, so comfortable to wear, warm yet light that I really want to recommend this yarn. Such a pleasure.

Cascade - Luna
CASCADE LUNA 3 out of 5
Got the pale yellow on sale, & except that there were so-o many knot joins, this was fun to knit with & I'm happy with the cabley cardigan. Suggest you get an extra ball or 2 so you don't need to worry about having enough because of those joins, since it's a one ply cotton, you can't ply it so there's more waste.
