I could not resist this yarn at this recession buster price. I got 2 bags of five colors. I am feeling ambitious I guess. What colors did you get and what are you planning to knit with it?

Seeing as I still have three bags of the Sonata print (Rio - reds, Curacao - turquouse & Renaissance - plums and purples) and one bag (Aegean Sea) of Sonata solid, all untouched from last summer's bag sales, I resisted! Though I did check the reds and purples to see if there were any left that would coordinate with my Rio and Renaissance, thankfully not by the time I looked.

I am thinking I will get to them this summer with some crochet patterns. I really like the ones in the upcoming summer Interweave Crochet. How about you, Pat, what are you going to do with your five colors, and what colors did you get :-)?

I bought two bags each of Coffee Bean, Grand Canyon, French Navy, Cedar and Tarragon. Of course I am not sure what I will make with it, but it was such a good price and I made an Adrienne Vittadini sweater this summer with the African Violet I bought years ago. I liked knitting with this yarn and I like the way it is wearing. So hopefully this will stock my stash for awhile. What about you, have you any patterns picked out for your yarn?

Those colors are so pretty, I know them from the Highland Wool yarn that I am more familiar with! I concluded after trying to knit with Sonata recently that I can't get even stockinette (my fault, I think it is age-related). So it'll either be knit lace that can be done at a looser gauge or crochet. I like the Elann Peacock Plumes cardigan pattern, there are a few projects done in Sonata that you can see on Ravelry that look very nice.

I'm new to this community. I made my first purchase last week, and guess what? It was sonata in butterscotch. It was originally slated for a cardigan in Knit N Style but there are a couple projects in Interweave crochet that are tempting my hooks.

Welcome! I've heard that Sonata is excellent for crochet
