This yarn was my white whale. I must have cast on four times with this and I would always drop a stitch or do something really stupid to stuff up what I was knitting. The last time I had a friend who is a super knitter by my estimation try and fix a dropped stitch and she spent nearly an hour trying to fix it and finally gave up.
I decided that I would make a simple purl ridge cowl, and that if I stuffed up this time the yarn was going to be re-homed. I persevered and finished within a few days, being incredibly careful.
This yarn is so soft and held up to being frogged four times. It is incredibly soft to knit with and I'm starting to wonder whether I was making mistakes on purpose so my knitting experience wouldn't end.
I decided to wash and block immediately so the cowl could be used this year and wouldn't languish in the sewing up basket. After drying this yarn feels incredibly soft, almost like silk.
I hope JB's eventually stocks the 100g skeins.
I ordered this yarn from the Wool Watcher and had regrets the next day as I hadn't knit with thick & thin for a while. I did however love the colours.
When it arrived I felt an instant attraction and found myself winding it into a ball. Within a few hours My other WIPS were forgotten and I was casting on to make a cowl. I've loved knitting with this yarn, it feels so soft and the colour and texture changes have kept me interested. As soon as I finished my first project I immediately cast on to make a scarf with the leftovers.
I'll be lurking on the wool Watcher to see if another colour comes up.
