I made my husband a basketweave stitch scarf out of this yarn, and it knit up very easily and showed great stitch definition. He loves it because it's so soft. I have read that in time, this yarn will lose that stitch definition, but so far so good. The only thing that I had to watch was that it slipped very quickly through my fingers, so I really had to increase the tension on it as I knit (looping the yarn twice over my index finger instead of once as I usually do).
Although I haven't made anything other than a scarf with this yarn, I am extremely pleased with it. I bought it when I first got into knitting and had no idea how gorgeous yarn could be. The yarn is soft, and I love the thick-thin effect when I knit with it. The colors are absolutely to die for. Yes, it's expensive... however, I think it's worth every penny.
I am very happy with this set; the case is very handy, and I really like the bent tip needles; they're so much easier to weave in ends or sew with than straight needles. The eyes are a great size, and the needles comfortable in my hand.
I love this little sheep measuring tape. It pulls out easily, and is a snap to zip it back into the sheep. Besides, it's so dang CUTE! I use it a lot and love that it's so much cuter than a plain old measuring tape.
