This was a fun yarn to knit. I used it in a variation of the pattern Ultra Femme from S N B Nation. it was quite easily frogged, which can be nearly impossible in your yarns with halo, seriously ripping out your hard work is never less than aggravating. This is a necessary attribute when I'm the person clicking the sticks. Haven't washed it yet, I'm hoping it does as good in that department also. If I think about it, I'll try to get back to this subject when I know what I'm talking about.
