The colors are soft, the yarn is soft, I just love love love it! I have to be careful when buying Lorna's Laces brand, because some of their products are washable. That means the yarn is chemically treated, and it leaves a residue and/or rough feel that I dislike greatly. Luckily, not a problem with this yarn! It's gorgeous, I recommend it highly, you will love it!!!
I like to knit mostly, but often, especially on shawls and scarves, I enjoy putting a crochet trim. Up until now, I have just made it up as I went along. This book provides a number of attractive options, for both crocheting an edging onto a garment, and for making crochet trim that is attached separately, once completed. For me, it's a must-have for my library. I gave it four stars instead of five only because there aren't as many design options as I expected to find. Otherwise, highly recommend!
