I loved the colors, though the color changes were more abrupt and less gradual than I thought they would be. I knitted it up into an Ishbel . The stitch definition in blocked lace is gorgeous. It is a little rough feeling on the hands, and while its fine for neck wear, I wouldn't use it on projects meant for prlonged skin contact

Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Lace:

Bought 4 skeins of this from Webs and it has been in my stash. Recently used 2 skeins for lace scarves/wraps. I love this gradient yarn but found a join in each skein. When knitting lace this distresses me because joins are so much harder to hide in lace. The yarn is a little coarse but that doesn't bother me as it softened up some after blocking and I know that it will wear well. Just wish there were no joins.

Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Lace:

I'm using this yarn to knit a semicircular shawlette. My main stitch pattern is from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury of stitches, Fountain Lace, which intoduces a scallop to blend the colors. If it wasn't for the whopping 20% nylon content I would love this yarn. The Grapevine colorway is bolder than the first color I used (Lichen, in the all wool sportweight) and I'm enjoying the changing colors. I've read in reviews on RAVELRY that this yarn does soften up quite a bit after a good soak, so I'm hoping that's my experience.

The joins are lumpy but yielded to gentle wet splicing. I'll post pictures of both of the shawlettes after they're blocked to share the colors. Larger lace motifs or just at the edge show these long repeat yarns to great advantage.

              Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Lace:

              This is the first lace yarn that has enough substance that I can tolerate knitting, and I look forward to the lovely color changes, which also helps to get the project done faster. I tend to abandon projects if I get bored, but Friea never bores me! The sport weight is also a great product and is a bit more versatile. All great stuff!!!
