Koigu - Kersti Merino Crepe
Beautiful colors, but... 3 out of 5
The colors of the yarn and the selection of colors are wonderful in general and from Jimmy Beans. However, the yarn seems a little stiff when knitting, not at all what I expected, Fortunately, once knitted garter stitch, it does seem softer, which is good since its going to be a baby blanket. It may also soften with a washing. The one main issue I've had is that one of the 7 hanks I ordered came up way short. I needed to stitch 22 garter ridges and only got 16 my gauge was spot on. The 2 other hanks I've used so far seem to have been closer to the expected length but I had to improvise on the pattern so I can't say for sure. The jury is still out as to whether I'd buy this yarn again.
