Unblocked & Blocked

Ok. This one sucks. No, really, it’s that bad.Ok, so maybe I just want it all for myself

Nice round 3 ply. Easy to knit, frog and reknit. Broke with a hard tug. This one flew off my needles without a snag, split or tantrum. Comments have it pilling, and my pill test showed this to be the case. But a few comments also noted that after a couple of shaves/depills, it’s good to go without further pilling. Nice smooth, even stitches, no biasing or rolling of edges once blocked.

Ravelry link, which will show this is a popular yarn choice, with more than 4,000 projects; stashed over 3,800 times; and 25 comments. While the comments do mention it’s a bit on the itchy side, I don’t find it completely intolerable. I put conditioner in it’s bath.

With 24 discontinued colors to choose from, one might wonder how many new ones there are going to be? So get the colors you want while you can. This one is worth the money!

Notes:

- US 7 (4.5mm)
- Gauge: 19st/4”, 6rpi - Blocked & Unblocked - gauge didn’t change for me and I got suggested gauge!
- Will pill, but should be ok after a couple shaves
- Slightly itchy, may be better not next to skin
- Frogged well
- Broke with a hard tug
- I signed up for a stashdown this year, so I could be so screwed!
