I made the Slinky Ribs top from Wendy Bernard's Custom Knits book with 4 skeins of this yarn. I love the combination of silk and cotton. I did knit it up fairly tightly so it would keep its shape better. The body I knit up in a US4, the sleeves in a US3. I am very happy with the results. I actually put this sweater in the washing machine on gentle, then let it lay flat to dry until it is dry enough to hang for the last little bit. Even though the label says to handwash, my sweater does just fine, it has gone through the wash at least 10 times by now. The colours of this yarn are very beautiful, I am planning to make more projects with it just so I can try out different colorways.

Dye lots NOT the same

Both skeins were color TPS39, lot 4920, but you can see a definite change where I started the second skein. Not at all happy to see this in my project.

                I have made several scarves and shawls with this product. This time I'm making a shawl with the body in the "pansy" colorway and using a purple shade of Tonos for the boarder. The "pansy" is gorgeous: lovely colors, so soft. The finished product will be glorious!

                      I really loved this yarn when it arrived. The color and texture are excellent. But it's a bit finer gauge than I was looking for--to me, it's a true sport weight, not a dk, so I won't be able to use it for the intended project. But it's such a nice yarn, I will find a new use for it.

                          It is a little hard on the hands, but knits up soft and beautiful! Love the colors and the feel. Nice, even yarn. I would knit with it again.

                          I made hand-warmers from this yarn. It is gorgeous yarn, very brightly, yet tastefully colored. But it started to pile after first use, what a pity. I also don't like 100g skeins, because not all projects need this much yarn, especially at this gauge.
