I am attending a Roaring Twenties themed wedding this summer and needed some kind of head covering. I bought the Northwest Coast Flapper Hat Pattern and used this yarn to knit it up. I added a rhinestone pin and voila! I can hardly wait to wear it.

      Disappointed that every ball I have used for the sweater has a knot in it. I have used 5 balls so far. Maybe that's why it's on sale.

        Comments about Artful Yarns Olympic:

        I was disappointed in the coarseness of the material. I am hoping that once washed maybe it will soften somewhat. If not, will try some fabric softener. But it makes a beautiful garment; making a pattern called Cowboy Cowl and it is gorgeous.

            I'm on a yarn buying tear, and I was looking for a yarn with shimmer. Artful Yarns Olympic (colors: Rome, Melbourne and Barcelona) hit the spot!

            It snags a little, but the color and shimmer make me smile. I am using Rome to knit a lace pattern scarf. The colorway reminds me of Fruity Pebbles, and I am hoping my friend will appreciate the youth in the knit!
