I love this yarn for felting!! I used it to make the felted clutch out of the book, One Skein written by Leigh Radford. I have spent most of the summer making these clutches to give as Christmas presents but I have to admit that this one made with the Lilac Combo will be a keeper for moi. The color verigation turns out beautiful results and the feel of the yarn is fabulous. I will definitely use this one again. Thanks Laura for the recommendation!
My mom and I both purchased the Denise Needle set after seeing it at the Stitches West convention. We both use our needles religiously and have made a variety of projects on them - afghans, sweaters, scarfs. The flexible cables reduce hand and wrist fatigue and the smooth needle tips work extremely well. I'm usually a bamboo needle user for the smooth feeling and these work just as well. Plus, you save money by getting so many needle sizes in both straight and circular styles. I highly recommend these!!
I have made a drop stitch scarf using one ball of this yarn and size 11 needles. It makes a nice dressy scarf that can be worn with a variety of colors. The only thing I noticed is that it is a bit on the scratchy side, but otherwise a great yarn.
