    I am knitting a lovely shawl that ties in the front and I am taking this on a trip. I love to have a knitting project for long trips. This yarn works up beautifully!

      Made a lovely cowl for a friend for Xmas. She loved it! I loved the experience of knitting it and so I ordered more of this yarn in three other colors.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Chesapeake:

        I bought this yarn to make a baby blanket…I suspect it will wash nicely in gentle cycle and dry flat.
        I liked it so much I bought enough to make myself a sweater.
        So far, the blanket is finished. The sweater not so much

          I'm using this yarn to make a pretty little baby sweater. Great weight for spring, fall, and cool summer nights. Love the weight and it'seems softness.

            Disappointing quality

            • Soft

            Cons

            • Too many joins

            Best Uses

            • Sweaters

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Chesapeake:

            I like the coloring (I bought the light/dark purple) and the tweed-like effect. The only problem is that I have been finding 1-2 joins per ball. These are small, 50g balls, so the presence of so many joins makes me nervous about the quality. I also don't like the bumps that show up on my work from the messy ties used to join the yarn.

              I bought this at the tent sale. What an experience! I love the yarn and the price was soooooo low. I'm making a pullover short sleeve sweater, and it looks even better than I thought it would.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I shop Webs alot and always enjoy the experience. Great staff and wonderful store.
