I used this for my first lace shawl, which was a steep learning curve - the yarn survived multiple ripping out and re-knitting frustrations (I'm a perfectionist) with no signs of pilling or wear and tear. The finsihed product looked great, and the second shawl was easy! The third is in the works. As a transplanted West Coaster, I'm also a sucker for their saturated West Coast colours.

    Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

    I'm making the Litchfield shawl, stockinet on size 7 needles, and Tough Love Sock is working beautifully. Very soft, in spite of the nylon, and I would not hesitate to use it for mittens. Plus the color Birch is perfect, exactly what I wanted, an off white that has a little more interest than "off white" implies, but not so much that it seems to stripe. I've run into no knots, it doesn't split or snag, and knits evenly and looks beautiful in the shawl. I'm really pleased with it, both color and texture.

          Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

          I ordered this yarn as a substitute for Kollage's Sockalicious to make a shawl featured in your Fall catalog. I am very pleased with Sweet Georgia. It is soft and drapes beautifully. The lacey design of the shawl is just as lovely as that pictured in the pattern. The nylon component makes it stretchy and easy on the hands. Mistakes are easily fixed and I am definitely a fan!

              I love to knit socks and the best sock yarn I have used is Sweet Georgia Tough Love -- it is soft, not splitty, fabulous colours to choose from, knits up beautifully, and it's not itchy! I have made socks using many, many different yarns and Sweet Georgia is my favourite, by far.

                Used the yarn for socks. It is a dream to knit with. Very soft, not splitty and it knits up beautifully.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Service and delivery from WEBS is excellent. Shipping to Canada is reasonable. This yarn (Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock Yarn) is from Canada, yet it was cheaper for me to order from WEBS and pay for shipping. The colour assortment available at WEBS is excellent -- better than any of my LYS in Canada.

                    Love the colors. I used this for a sweater, 2 actually but frogged the first and yarn still looked good. Some bleeding of colors when washed. Purchased 7 skeins, four used so far with no knots. The downside, winding was a nightmare.
