This book was too expensive considering how unattractive most of the designs are... I was disappointed about that.

I loved this beautiful yarn... It is soft and fun to knit with. It is 'interesting' while being quick to knit. I like the color choices very much and plan to buy more before it disappears.

 Babies Neckdown Cardigan {hoodie} 3 of 8 
 Review by: Nin Aug 01, 2012

This is a great pattern to have archived for obligatory baby gifts. The perfect little 'hoodie' can be knitted quickly in the much appreciated toddler size. This pattern is also very easy to customize with intarsia animals or knitted cables, etc. I appreciated the unisex versatility of this pattern, very much.

This very beautiful yarn looks best knit at a slightly smaller gauge than the range of needles suggest but it is worth experimenting with. The knitted results are very wonderful. I love this yarn.

The pattern I chose was beautifully original. Unfortunately, some of the instructions were slightly unconventional too. Never mind it all worked out very well. The patterns in these books really are 'designs' rather than variations of the same old stuff.

I love this weirdly pretty yarn for its beauty and its softness. The textures that happen are perfectly beautiful for lots of patterns. It knits quickly and looks great. More naturally 'tinted' color options would be welcomed...

 Rowanista 7 of 8

I love Rowan books and appreciated the design work in this one. As usual, I resented the cost. I also would have appreciated charts to accompany the some of the slightly odd instructions for patterning. Still, I am pleased and will use this book for more than just one project.

 Slightly daunting 8 of 8 
 Review by: Nin Dec 20, 2010 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Kidsilk Haze
Knitting with this beautiful yarn is slightly tedious but worthwhile. It is rather like knitting with fuzzy thread. The results are very beautiful though. The colors are lovely and the skeins provide great 'mileage'. JB matched some leftovers from the kit I had purchased with the same dye-lot, so I am doing another very pretty project from Fresh Fashion Knits. I am ready for a change-up, now. I am tired of fuzzy thread!!! :
