Bought the yarn & pattern five minutes after I saw it in your Spring catalogue -first time I've done that- started the Victoria Top four times for various reasons, but it is knitting up fast., & I love it.
Yarn has interesting colorways, so each (side of the) top looks different, as front & back both use same pattern.

I chose a pattern written for this yarn "Taormina Circle Vest". I did fine with the stockinet center of the vest, but the lace part was pure agony as the nubs and slubs in the yarn caused me to drop a lot of stitches sometimes not discovered until several rows later. Very frustrating!!!!!!

      Nice use for knitting the Victoria Top. I needed to go down a size since this is very stretchy yarn.

            This is a fun and and pretty textural yarn to work with. The basic color changes in the striping effect are gradual with tweed-like specks of brighter colors popping effervescently. I am making the Victoria Top from the Prima Donna booklet ( Filatura Di Crosa) and it is going together beautifully. Love this yarn!!

              Used 4 colors of Tempo for a mitered sweater--almost done and it looks gorgeous. The colors are each interesting and blend well. This top is done in garter stitch and it's coming out a nice weight. Don't drop a stitch though as the yarn is comprised of many multiple strands and it's really hard to get them all back on the needle!

                Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Tempo:

                This is the second time I've ordered this yarn. The first time I made the Filature diCrosa "Vivo Tee". Then I reordered the yarn in a different color (and a slightly greater quantity); I'm planning to make the same Tee but with long sleeves. The self-stripe works up beautifully and the result is a very comfortable light-weight top that can be worn year-round. I've enjoyed wearing it and I've received many compliments on it as well!

                I made three Crustacean Shawls, which were beautiful, but a bit hard to weave in the ends with this type of yarn.
