Bought 3 skeins for 'made to spec' hats for family. Terrific yarn. Used sz11 instead of recm'd sz15. Yarn sparkles when flashed w cell phone - great joy for high school kids.
Mom happy as darlings now have hats that light up when they walk home in the dark. Kids happy w all the photos
lovely yarn, but I had expected a fatter yarn heavy aran for the 100gm/137yd weight. Perhaps the coating that makes it superwash adds weight? Still the colors are bright, and the yarn seems a lightweight worsted thickness, so will be able to use on another project instead of the heavy worsted afghan I was hoping to use it towards.
For those projects that require a washable blend, this is my favorite yarn. The colors are vibrant and do not bleed or fade with washing. It washes and dries wonderfully. It knits like a nice worsted, rather than a lighter-weight worsted. I just finished a garter-stitch Hudson Bay blanket for my expectant daughter-in-law. As I expected, another Vintage project turned out beautifully! One more point to love about this yarn - the selection of colors is incredible!
These needles are very comfortable to knit with and I love them. The only reason they have 4 stars I stead of 5 is beacause I've had 2 needles break already. One broke trying to get it out of the package and the other during use. Despite the breakage I still really like these needles.
