The yarn, Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, and the pattern, fan lace baby blanket, were great. The wooden circular needles I was using, however, were making me grumpy and endangering a WIP. Throwing it all down, I ordered these in-all-ways golden needles. Two days later, I had them and all was once again merry in the world of knitting. I would not begin another lace project with any other kind of needle.
Nice hand and beautiful color saturation in a superwash wool very important as my husband tends to toss everything in the wash without a care. I'm making a double knitted scarf and have been able to keep the tension and stitches more even than in other reversible knits I've made with other yarn. My only issue with the 220 is that the balls tend to come apart in chunks, forcing me to untangle and rewind more than I would like. Otherwise, super yarn!
