I love the feel of all Lorna's Laces yarns but this Shepherd Sport Yarn is especially soft and wonderful. Not only does it feel wonderful after it is worked up, it is the most amazing, bright, happy green color with a hint of variegation.
I have made over a half dozen Lady Violet's dinner gauntlets and love how easy it is to knit with this yarn . . . consistent stitches, gorgeous color combinations, making for a great result.
My only caution is that the more colors in the skein, like Child's Play, the more self striping between rows and I prefer the random variegated effect found using a skein with three colors. But that may have been caused by the pattern for the fingerless mitts. Just keep it in mind!
The yarn is a delight and knitted up beautifully. Based on the picture, though, I thought the colors were going to be a bit more muted. But it turned out well anyway, of course because LL yarn is so delightful.
