I used this yarn to make a pair of socks and was delighted. The colours were beautiful and transitioned well from one to the next. As another commenter noted, it takes a long time for the yarn to repeat - which can be good or bad, depending what you like. I really didn't want the socks to match perfectly and was happy with this whimsical result. If you feel adventurous and are prepared to just enjoy what comes next, it's great! The yarn does vary somewhat in thickness and I believe this is deliberate. It makes for some pleasant and subtle variations in the final product - though you definitely want to use double yarn on the heels and toes to ensure good durability.

I have made several socks out of this yarn. Each time I say I will never do it again, but the colors are lovely. The pair I just finished will be my last though. So:
Pros: Lovely color transitions
Cons: Biggest - I found the repeat FINALLY by the heal of the second sock - there was not enough yarn to have made a matching pair of socks. I think I should have had the option of making a matched pair. In addition the yarn splits, and knots.

I now have 2 lovely socks made from the same yarn and pattern that do not look like a pair of socks.

    I love the yarns I have ordered from WEBS. The quality is the best of any I have ever ordered on line. I have tried other websites, but have not been satisfied and I have gone to craft stores, but can't find the quality. I will always buy my yarn from WEBS!

        Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

        I purchased two opposite colors of Poems and alternated them in a fan stitch long scarf. It's simply beautiful and a palette of many colors. I know that many reviews cited that the yarn was knotted in many places...I don't really find this a huge problem. I just back it up, cut off the knot and begin again on the row. With a vibrant colored yarn such as Poems, even though the color may not be similar after the knot....well, they are all used on a color chart that promotes the colors will be compatible. I wouldn't put too much weight on the knot situation.

        Too many knots in one skein :(

              I'm a little bit frustrated about this nice colorchanging yarn. I ordered it online. I'm still knitting on the Wingspan scarf, a Christmas gift for my godmother, and on 1/3 way I have already 3 knots in my project. I have no idea how many will follow until I finish it. I know that knots can happen ... but why can't the campany mark yarns with knots and offer it cheaper ? I paid the full prize and have no fun knitting the project. This is my first time that I wouldn't recommend a yarn ... I'm sorry. But I know Webs has more yarn brands to enjoy knitting :)

                Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

                I bought a skein of "Cruise" to make fun socks for my teenager. I was very surprised at the dry, scratchy texture. I don't think I would use it for socks after all. However, the color transitions are very interesting and it makes a beautifully colored fabric. The yarn seems to be very consistent in thickness and texture. It does twist up a bit as it comes out of the skein, but you get that sometimes.

                Comments about Wisdom Yarns Poems Sock:

                Beautiful long-repeat slow transition color changes with minimal muddy areas between colors. Single ply rustic yarn with a bit of overtwist makes occasional kinking a problem. Strongly suggest rewinding pull skeins into outside pull balls and putting them in plastic zip bags before knitting. Used this in combo with a single color Zauberball for a rectangular variant on a 10-stich modular spiral lap blanket. Two skeins of Poem plus one of the Zauberball is enough for a baby blanket. Narrow strips of garter knitting show off the color gradient of the Poems to excellent effect. Very pleased

                    I read the other reviews before buying one skein so I had a good idea of what to expect. The yarn I received did NOT have any knots, and it did not break or shred. It knit up well into a Lazy Katy shawl and blocked very nicely. That being said, the inconsistent thick / thin nature of this yarn would keep me from using it again in a lace pattern.

                    I used this yarn to make a shrug for my niece. it was soft for a wool yarn. I bought it solely for the color transitions which didn't disappoint. it might be a little itchy for next to skin wear but I have sensitive skin

                    It is dificult to do color work with it because the loose fibers on each yarn tend to tangle together and thus make it difficult to maintain a good tension.
