Lovely, subtle patterns to show off the natural shades of wool. Those in love with color--and ONLY with color--should steer clear of this book, but if you're a knitted aware of subtleties, there are patterns here to intrigue and delight.
Never used any Madelinetosh yarn before this, but I've been very impressed. The colors are rich, the yarn soft and smooth, and there's a self-effacing sheen to this particular yarn that makes it luxurious and special.
It's not real silver and gold that glitter in Berroco's new Flicker yarn, but what IS real is the incredible softness, warm and light weight of this yarn. I made a cardigan for a friend from the dark gray/silver Flicker, then decided to buy one of the warmer-toned colors for a cardigan of my own. The yarn goes a long way, too: My size 42-inch chested friend only took eight balls!
This limited-edition sock yarn for October is springy, soft and makes an amusing pattern when knitted in laurel leaf motif. The colors pool on the leaves and stripe on the heel, toe and soul. Very amusing and autumnal. Congrats to the folks at Lorna's Laces.
