I have not knit socks with this yet, but my friend has, and I really loved the feel and the striping. I am a beginner sock knitter, and I can't wait to start this this striping sock yarn. Thanks, great yarn at a good price!
It's probably a reflection of my inexperience with this yarn, but when I began knitting with it, it was like it had a life (and will) of its own. Once I got the first couple rows knitted - and addressed it firmly - it did settle down and behaved much better. I'm working on a crocheted project also and the yarn seemed easier to control. Also, it does have a tendency to coil around itself if you have to pull too much out of the skein. Anyway, both projects are progressing, the colorways are beautiful and I'm impressed with how nicely the fabric drapes.
I have made several items out of this yarn, and everything has turned out perfectly. Love the extra stretch. Beautiful colors.
Love the yarn. Easy to work with. Great color blends and color choices. Socks stay on and feel good. They wash well. The only negative I have about the yarn is I can not get the end of the yarn from the center of the ball without pulling out large amounts of tangled yarn. Happened to me numerous times when using this yarn. All in all, I still come back to buy this yarn. Fix this problem and you will be 5 stars. Wish Plymouth would provide a free sock pattern using circular (magic loop) needles (they do provide a free pattern using double pointed to go with their yarn).
I love this yarn and wish it came in a larger variety of colors including solids. It has an incomparable feel and drape when knitted into a shawl. I used it for The Hitchhiker pattern and was tickled when on internet knitting sites, I found that many knitters use it for The Hitchhiker themselves. I love the stretch and haven't found any other yarn to quite compare.
I chose the purple as shown. Pattern that came with it seemed a bit difficult for a" beginner" (have not knitted in years) , but excellent on-line help in finding a pattern I could use.. Yarn is soft as can be.
