    I love to crochet but don't like fuss. I have PTSD (Post Traumatic Shock) and working with soft yarn and soothing colors is healing for me. This yarn creates beautiful patterns with long smooth color ways. Personally I think most yarn will knot in the skein if you aren't careful, and my generation learned to roll balls of yarn to get around this. I use a box my husband made 30+ years ago that holds the yarn balls so they don't escape while feeding the flow of yarn smoothly through a hole in the top. A coffee can would work as well. ;-)

    I chose this because the baby-to-come's mother will be wanting to wash often anything the baby uses. She's fanatic about that, and I wanted it to be easy so she'd feel easy about using the blanket. It's not as soft as I had imagined, though it's really OK. I couldn't tell the balance of colors in the range I chose from the skein, so I didn't get the amount of yellow I was hoping for. Another time I would have looked further than my nearby store for the original skeins. What I bought here was an extra one, since I wanted a little larger sized blanket than they had yarn for. I wish I had made the effort to look further, though it will be fine. I think I should have held out for a cotton blend. Since the yarn is what do you call it (a chainette?) it has a single fine thread that makes it all up. If one strand breaks it's possible for the whole yarn to come apart, creating a break. This happened far down the web which took some time to repair. I later learned a way to splice this kind of yarn by threading a yarn needle with the next end down the center of the chain.

              The colors were so dark and drab, not like the photo at all. I sent a very nice e-mail to ask about the problem. I got a very poor e-mail back which told me that I should go to another site and look up items made with it as I didn't understand the self stripe as I knit. First I had used this yarn before and I crochet. So I returned the e-mail with a very to the point, your product is bad and requested a return UPS label. Yarn was returned. I would
              love to try other color, but am afraid to do so.

                I've used this yarn for a cowl, hat & mitts. I am now knitting a basic blocks afghan. This yarn knits up nicely & the colors are really great.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I was really impressed with the delivery time on my yarn. Really fast service & the yarn was a good price also.

                    This yarn is a favorite of the members of the Shawl Ministry at church. It has interesting colorways, knits up quickly, only takes 3 skeins per shawl, and has a pleasing texture. It makes a cozy comforting shawl. My only wish is that there were even more colors to choose from.

                    Comments about Ella Rae Seasons:

                    This is a nicely dyed yarn with a great variety of colors which don't just hop in and out - a long portion devoted to each changing color. I'm making two Entrelac scarves and love the way the color comes in blocks. It's a good combo of silk and other fibers. It knits fairly quickly but the yarn tends to twist up fairly quickly if you don't keep a grip on it. So far, it feels somewhat scratchy but that will probably soften when washed and blocked.

                      I made the Topsy Turvey Shawl by Joanne T. It's a Faroese style and turned out lightweight but warm. I wear it around the house and reading in bed. I made two other shawls for friends out of the same yarn (different colors) and pattern. We all love the shawls in this yarn--the yarn is perfectly suited to the pattern. I also made Steinbeck Scarf by Teresa Chorzepa. It is a fairly narrow scarf with one big cable down the center. It is beautiful with the long subtle color changes of Seasons, and soft against the neck.

                        I am knitting a lap robe out of it and love the way the colors fade into each other. I generally knit Continental, which means that split stitches are more frequent, but I did not encounter that with this yarn.
