Although I have yet to knit with this yarn, I bought it to make the Skeleton Key Tam on Ravelry. It's going to be perfect since it has great stitch definition for the cables due to the 100% wool content. It is incredibly soft, I can't wait to start working with it. The color is wonderful with a heathery appearance. Love, love love!! I love all of Swan's Island's yarns!!
I just bought this set a month ago and already looove! I prefer longer tips but still wanted the ultra pointed edge of the Addi Lace needles so I was so delighted when these came out. Also, the set does not have the nickel coating like the individual Lace circs do. I know some knitters out there might not like this fact but there are those knitters who have a chemical reaction to the nickel - like myself! One more reason why I love this set are the lifeline cords. Basically, they have a threadable eyelets so you can easily thread waste yarn through while you're knitting to create a lifeline! Genius! As always, the joins are relatively seamless and the needles are awesome!
This yarn is so so so soft! I chose this yarn for a scarf for someone who is very sensitive to pretty much every fiber. Now, she can wear this close to her skin without it being scratchy. I liked how this yarn knit it - it is a thick and thin texture but still knits like a dream. Just make sure to choose the right pattern for this yarn and you will love it!
Color coordinated needles? Yes, please! Although the 16 needles are a bit difficult to knit with - the needles are so short it's hard to grasp - I love the pointy tips, smooth wood, and snagless join. I will definitely use these for longer circular lengths - I want the interchangeable set so bad!
Although I'm pretty biased when it comes to Knitscene - I'm in love with just about every issue this one is particularly up my alley since it has tons of bohemian inspired knits! I bought it for the paisley cowl but will probably end up doing the fringed shawl and the Malabrigo Lace cardigan at some point, too!
I actually got this for a non-knitter in the family to store odds and ends in her purse - make-up, pens, etc. - but am now considering getting myself one to store random knitting notions like my stitch makers who have decided to explore inside my bag! The price is affordable enough to grab a few!
