I had already used Findley color 09 Bittersweet for Purl Soho's whisper Wrap shawl and loved it! This time I'm making the cardigan Loden Mist. The lace patterning is still showing with the dappled color way. This yarn is so luscious, and I've never come across a knot. Woohoo!
Shibui Linen is only getting 4 stars from me because of care that must be used when knitting with it. The yarn is crocheted into this thickness from one very thin strand of linen. Break one strand and the yarn unzips and you will have to unknit some to fix the break. This can easily be controlled by knitting with a gentle touch. Other than that it is wonderful to work with, and after soaking in Soak for one hour it become soft with a wonderful drape.
I'd love to say that this yarn looks great as the shawl edging it was meant to be, but I never used it. I was looking for a red plum color. After this arrived I figured I really needed a fuschia. The yarn looks great, though. I'll be able to use it with another project. No harm, no foul.
