I have loved Interweave Knits since the beginning, and their special issues have not disappointed, either! I found the patterns to be intriguing but not intimidating and they look wearable :
I will be looking for the next issue!
4 stars only because I haven't washed it yet! Using it for the Sawtelle Adult free pattern smooth in the hand, and crisp stitches at gauge. A bit pricey, but I am enjoying working with this yarn, and feeling green as well :
I used some of this with glow in the dark yarn for a hat for my son, and liked it so well I got a second color for another one! It feels wonderful in the hand, and makes clear stitches. 4 stars because I haven't washed it yet, but expect it to earn the 5th! Will use again, for sure!
I am really enjoying collecting the Harry Potter colorways. Already a fan of this yarn, I love the feel the way it works up and of course, the yardage! Using the hand dye catalog edition to record my stash - and make a wish list!
This anniversary colorway is just gorgeous, and so much fun to work with as the colors change! I am doing the Ravelry JB KAL for Larch, and the lace pattern is nicely repetitive and perfect for summer knitting! Love the hand-dye catalog #2 as well - so nice to look at yarn types, then hold the place and look at colors also handy for keeping track of stash :
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!
