This time it was for Cathy Carron's "School Ties" pattern from her Cowlgirls book (which I also bought at WEBS). I already had a skein of the Sunflower and Deep Blue Sea from a previous purchase of Colors by Kristin. I decided it was about time to make my daughter that Ravenclaw scarf I promised her years ago. I worked in magic loop and this pattern was so much fun. This yarn was part of the fun as it slides nicely on the needles, is soft to the touch, doesn't split easily and has just the right amount of stretch. I have paid betwenn $4.79 and $5.49 a skein and for 95 yards it's a good price. This purchase was two more skeins of the blue to finish the project. I ended up with about 4 yards left when I was done.

Classic Elite Yarn

With alpaca & mohair in it, I expected it to be softer yarn.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

        This yarn slides along on my metal needles, making for a pleasant knitting experience. The color is bright. I was gifted a 10 skein bag, and I ordered another bag in order to knit myself a sweater. WEBS was able to send the same dye lot, which is MUCH appreciated! I have a sensitive neck, so no scarves or cowls with any bit of wool or alpaca for me, but sweaters, hats and mitts made with this yarn are warm and comfortable.

                I made a shawl for my Mom. She picked this product. .I'm so glad that I made the shawl!!!! She will love it!!! The color is amazing!!! I made La La's Shawl out of the yarn. It is so perfect. I really wish that I wasn't giving it away. Love Mom, though.

                I will definitely purchase more of this yarn for myself.

                    I used this for a sweater and love the lightness of the yarn and its warmth. I hope it does not pill, being a softer fiber.
