Bought the yarn & pattern five minutes after I saw it in your Spring catalogue -first time I've done that- started the Victoria Top four times for various reasons, but it is knitting up fast., & I love it.
Yarn has interesting colorways, so each (side of the) top looks different, as front & back both use same pattern.

I chose a pattern written for this yarn "Taormina Circle Vest". I did fine with the stockinet center of the vest, but the lace part was pure agony as the nubs and slubs in the yarn caused me to drop a lot of stitches sometimes not discovered until several rows later. Very frustrating!!!!!!

Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Tempo:

I used this yarn to create a piece worked sweater. The finished fabric has interesting color changes especially when worked in different directions. The weight of the finished fabric is perfect for the warm weather of Florida. Finishing off from skein to skein was easy to hide and blend the yarns.

      Nice use for knitting the Victoria Top. I needed to go down a size since this is very stretchy yarn.

            This is a fun and and pretty textural yarn to work with. The basic color changes in the striping effect are gradual with tweed-like specks of brighter colors popping effervescently. I am making the Victoria Top from the Prima Donna booklet ( Filatura Di Crosa) and it is going together beautifully. Love this yarn!!

              Used 4 colors of Tempo for a mitered sweater--almost done and it looks gorgeous. The colors are each interesting and blend well. This top is done in garter stitch and it's coming out a nice weight. Don't drop a stitch though as the yarn is comprised of many multiple strands and it's really hard to get them all back on the needle!

                Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Tempo:

                This is the second time I've ordered this yarn. The first time I made the Filature diCrosa "Vivo Tee". Then I reordered the yarn in a different color (and a slightly greater quantity); I'm planning to make the same Tee but with long sleeves. The self-stripe works up beautifully and the result is a very comfortable light-weight top that can be worn year-round. I've enjoyed wearing it and I've received many compliments on it as well!
