Nice to work with

I enjoyed working with this cotton. It has a nice feel and doesn't stress my hands. I made a summer top for my niece. The color changes are soft and very pretty.

Not very happy!

I was expecting the entire Skien to be the same as the outer layers. Sadly, 75% of the bulk was tan. The only thing I could use the yarn for was socks.

      Comments about Sirdar Summer Stripes:

      this yarn was very soft on the hand and easy to work with a crochet hook. It had an unusual texture that reminded me of very small chenille but was not at all a chenille. Confused? Sorry! It feels fluffy when you work with it, but left good, lacy crochet stitch definition and blocked out beautifully. Even though it felt fluffy, I threaded beads onto it easily for crocheting into the fringe work. Loved the long self-striping aspect.

                I used this to crochet a prayer shawl for a burn victim. I wanted a soft yarn that wouldn't shed or be real fuzzy. This was also nice a soft.

                    I am making KFI's Cable Cutaway Top for my granddaughter. She will look absolutely gorgeous in this. Her favorite color is pink and this yarn has soft shades of pink.

                        The yarn itself is beautiful & knits up great but the picture on the web-site was not completely helpful. I was looking for a variegated yarn to make an afghan for a baby boy that's coming soon. The yarn pictured was a nice combination of blues, yellows, greens with a faint hint of a coral or something that I couldn't quite make out. The yarn definitely looked boyish & when the yarn arrived, all 8 skeins looked boyish but to my surprise after I had knitted about 2 inches or so a large section of coral/red appeared & went on for about an inch of knitted pattern. I'm continuing to knit the afghan but will probably give this one to the big sister & now have to make a second one for the baby brother. If this had been shown in the original picture I would not have chosen this color-way for this project.
