      I like the color choices of this yarn. It lends itself nicely to lace work and of course socks. I have used this yarn for the Swirly Shawl in several shades and am quite pleased with the finished projects.
      One caveat is that the yarn likes to split if you are not paying attention to the tension while you knit.

      I used this yarn to make a pair of legwarmers. The pattern was poorly written and it turned out I had to hold the yarn double to make it work (no fault of the yarn).

      The pros: I absolutely love how the finished product looks and feels. It is soft and squishy, and I believe they will keep the recipient's legs toasty warm. The gradual color changes are beautiful blends of red and violet.

      The cons: I absolutely hated working with this yarn. Each strand is really two strands of different colors twisted together rather loosely. This results in constantly splitting each strand. Now consider that I was working with two strands held together; this meant that there were effectively 4 strands to each stitch. Generally I do not have a problem with split stitches, but I did it constantly with this yarn, even once I was aware of the problem.

      gradual stripes

      By mhutton

      About Me Enthusiast

      Pros

      • Good Weight

      Best Uses

      • Socks

      Comments about Jojoland Melody Superwash:

      Interesting effects in modular sweaters and those with short rows. It's sometimes difficult to join balls, as the very gradual color shifts don't always line up with each other. Before starting a project, I find it's useful to number all balls according to how well their starts match the ends of other balls, so I have a sequence in which to knit them.
      Although this is labeled superwash, it can shrink a bit and felt in a washing machine.
      Overall, the effects can be beautiful---worth the effort of pre-ordering color shifts and careful washing. Recommend for experienced and adventurous knitters.

        Made sweaters for my grandchildren that have been worn repeatedly for 2 years now. Yarn is fun to knit with and colors were beautiful. They are getting worn out now but still look good. Had to repair a few snags this year but they have withstood constant wearing.

          I crochet with this yarn. I am making a ribbed scarf with it now with a K hook. It is so springy, soft and lovely. I have also knitted with this yarn. Love the colorways.

              Socks made with this yarn are fine enough to actually wear inside a pair of lace-up shoes without the bulk of most "sock yarn."

              Service and delivery comments:

              The original shipment arrived 40 days AFTER the post office said they had delivered it! WEBS made good the order anyway, replacing the missing yarn cheerfully, then made it easy to return the first shipment when it finally did arrive.

              The positive is the colors are beautiful - pinks greens. I ordered 4 balls of this yarn to make 2 scarves for 2 residents at my mother's assisted living facility. No 2 are even remotely alike although the dye lots are exactly the same. There were knots in each of the 4 balls that had to be cut out. I had to try a variety of patterns until I found something where the inconsistency of the colors wouldn't be so obvious. The yarn is scratchy even after washing and blocking. Very disappointing.

              Comments about Jojoland Melody Superwash:

              I ordered two skeins each of #42 and #27. I was really wanting to use the #27 color for my Dreambird shawl I was getting prepped for, but when I was winding the yarn, I only had two colors out of the many that they show in their picture swatch: red and green. I wanted a bit more color changes than just those two colors (so I was a bit disappointed in that). I wound up the #42 color and it had such variety of color! I really love this yarn and the color choice for my shawl which I paired up with Sensations Truly sock yarn. I wanted all my yarns to be machine washable. One thing is I wish it was more Fingering yarn than Light Fingering, it is quite a bit thinner in some areas than my other sock yarn I'm using.

              Here is the WIP of the shawl I am working on with the #42 Melody Superwash.

                Comments about Jojoland Melody Superwash:

                I made a shawl with the Jojoland rhythm, turned out lovely. I plan on using the Melody for a sampler vintage pattern - it calls for a finer yarn - however I need a solid to join the squares or perhaps a nice black and grey color wave would add a sensational look using bright and different color waves for each of the squares. I would like to see black and greys in the Jojoland Rhythm rather than the Navy. I think this would be a great seller for making a nice Winter Shawl, Coat or Sweater that would go with everything. I also made several scarfs for gifts. I made a georgous entrelac queen size bedspread with Jojoland Rhythm - I mixed all the color waves. I was fortunate enough to find a huge bag of this at an estate sale. It was a rare bargain I might add. Amazing is a better word. There were over 80 balls of Jojoland Rhythm. I took advantage of the numerous color waves and created my prized possession - Siesta in the Pines - I love this Bedspread especially on my Queen Size Poster Bed. Delightfully cozy and extremely warm, however not too heavy. Perfect for the winter months. I ended up having to puchase about 15 more balls but it was worth the results. Glorious results and it was completely crocheted in rounds. Mine shows noticable color changes because I continuously worked in a circle. It is not symetrically correct - I did this with intent to give it a artsy or rag time appeal. In the years of past, they used any colors they had. I always found them to be most creative and love the scappy look this has. My Grandmother always used whatever she could even included adding a strand of string for strength she would say. She would use 2 strands if needed of this and that etc. I loved her dearly and was always fascinated with her wonderful creations. I am blessed to have worked with her and still remember her holding me on her lap while she had me feed fabric through the old treadle machine. I couldn't even reach the peddal - I was only 5 years old. But she taught me in those many hours of patience and kindness, accuracy and speed amoung other skills I have never forgotten over the years. I will say this her motto was - IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE CORRECT IT - IF YOU EXPECT GOOD RESULTS.
