I didn't like it for socks because there wasn't enough give. So I frogged and am making a sleeveless top with it. Love the color blends and the fact that it is from recycled fiber. Am pleased so far with my progress on the top.

 Newbie experience 3 of 4

I've only been knitting now for a year, and this is definitely the most expensive yarn purchase I've ever made. The colors are vibrant and the yarn is soft. But it seems irregular - like hand spun? Not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but my biggest disappointment is that so far, each skein has at least one knot for color joins. I undo the knot and spit join as taught by my instructor, but she also said that knots are not something acceptable and should be reported to the manufacturer. I purchased this yarn according to the pattern that my spinning guild chose. Since I am a newbie and have not learned to spin yet, I purchased this yarn rather than using my own hand-spun. At $8.50+ for 11 skeins called for, this will be one expensive vest. But I expect it will be worth it and this experience will make it all the more gratifying when I learn to spin my own yarn.

 Rowan Pima Cotton DK Yarn 4 of 4

I ordered this because it was on sale. The color and texture is lovely. It has joined my growing stash but I am looking forward to working with it. It is perfect for a girl's capelet pattern I found.
