I bought this yarn to make the Tolstoy cowl. The yarn does all the work! For an extra furry look, I pulled all the yarn tufts to the right side of the work. The yarn is very soft and the finished project looks amazing!
Most of the patterns for this yarn are baby-oriented baby blankets, hats, etc. But I originally bought this yarn to make a hat for the bf who has never taken an interest in any of my yarn except for this one. Fuzzy pom poms, go figure. The end products is very soft and smooshy. It feels like one of those microfiber throws. It is also scrub jay approved. Would definitely purchase again if I was in a pom pom mood.
Non-mercerized and blended with silk, it is very soft and a dream to knit with! I am currently knitting the Easy Summer Tee on Ravelry and have not noticed any splitting or shedding. This yarn has excellent drape and stitch definition. And only $3.60?! And so many colors to choose from. Yes, please! Will definitely be stocking up for the future.
It appears that at the slightest application of pressure, this stitch holders snap like twigs. Save yourself the trouble and just buy the one's from Knitter's Pride or Clover both of which are really great!.
I decided to finally purchase an interchangeable set after getting tired of moving around my collection of fixed circulars. These are all around great needles. Sharp but not too pointy that you're splitting your yarn. The joins with the cables are sturdy and smooth. I have not had issues with the yarn catching onto them. The tips attach securely to their cables and the cord stoppers work as described. They included a cord key with each of the cables but I have not had to use them. Simply twisting the tips onto the cords themselves works to secure them.
The joint ends do not spin however. I know this can be an issue for people who often get kinks in their circulars but this has not been an issue for me. If you want interchangeables that spin on their cables I would suggest the Addi set or the HiyaHiya sets.
Overall, this needle set has performed very well for me. If you're looking into purchasing your first interchangeable set, I would highly recommend these as an economical and effective needle set!
