I am in love with this yarn! I bought it because of the Osprey colorway our OA lodge totem in Scouts and also because it was meant as a gift item for a Wood Badge Bear. The colors were subtle in the hank and wound up - but in the knitting they blossomed! And this yarn is heaven to work with - easy to manipulate for lace, and so smooth it was mesmerizing! Just one warning - it was so smooth it jumped off the ball winder before I was all done : I used one skein for an infinity scarf based on the Noble cowl from Ravelry - the yardage was wonderful! Can't wait to start on the next one right after Ordeal!
Although I prefer rubber ring markers for a lot of my knitting, I use these a lot as well - great for marking right side of work, or which side needs an increase, etc. I also use these to mark beginning of rounds in crochet - and they are so useful for helping beginner crochets see the end st! These are lightweight, easy to use, and easy to see - and smooth.
