      I am making KFI's Cable Cutaway Top for my granddaughter. She will look absolutely gorgeous in this. Her favorite color is pink and this yarn has soft shades of pink.

          Comments about Sirdar Summer Stripes:

          The yarn itself is beautiful & knits up great but the picture on the web-site was not completely helpful. I was looking for a variegated yarn to make an afghan for a baby boy that's coming soon. The yarn pictured was a nice combination of blues, yellows, greens with a faint hint of a coral or something that I couldn't quite make out. The yarn definitely looked boyish & when the yarn arrived, all 8 skeins looked boyish but to my surprise after I had knitted about 2 inches or so a large section of coral/red appeared & went on for about an inch of knitted pattern. I'm continuing to knit the afghan but will probably give this one to the big sister & now have to make a second one for the baby brother. If this had been shown in the original picture I would not have chosen this color-way for this project.

                Comments about Sirdar Summer Stripes:

                Received skiens of Oasis as a gift to knit a summer sleeveless sweater for myself. Found the self-striping to create a very dynamic change even with a pattern that had open-work. I did notice more twisting than usual but it could have been the type of pattern work I selected. Yarn worked up quickly probablly because I wanted to see what the end result of the color pallet would be in the garment.

                  I enjoyed working with this cotton. It has a nice feel and doesn't stress my hands. I made a summer top for my niece. The color changes are soft and very pretty.

                      I have knitted two garments from this yarn and love how it knits up and feels while wearing the garment. Looking to make another. Highly recommend this product.
