 A little disappointed 1 of 5

I had not even cast on a dozen stitches before I realized that this yarn was majorly splitty. And the plies don't marry themselves back together once you've corrected the split, leaving little snaggy bits behind. On the bright side, there's a nice sheen to the fabric it makes, and the yarn is springy. I'm slogging on with this sweater thank goodness it's for a small child, trying to be careful, and cussing a little, neither of which seems to help. I won't buy this yarn again.

I've bought and used three different colorways in this yarn, and each time it's the same. Love the way the yarn feels and knits up dense, soft, squishy but there isn't enough of it to make a whole pair of women's large socks, so I have to use contrasting yarn for toes, heels and cuffs. Secondly, the yarn isn't long enough to give me a whole repeat. In other words, I can't make a matching pair, because I don't have the whole pattern unless I want to buy three balls of it. Anyway, the yellow is the only colorway left, and it's not very nice bought it and returned not same as on the listing.

I was horrified to see the colors of this yarn when it arrived today. The colors are much more saturated--and therefore garish--than in the product listing. I think the photo people must lighten the pictures for some reason as this isn't the first time it's happened. I'll knit it double with something more sedate, like plain gray, to tone it down, but on the whole I'm very disappointed.
