I really like everything about this yarn. I'm using it for a summer cardigan. The nubblySummer, thick/thin texture looks great knitted at loose gauge (17 stitches per inch). I also did a tighter gauge swatch for a handbag project. Looked great. It's a breeze to knit and hides mistakes well. Would love to use it for other summer projects, but for the pesky and frequent knots in every small ball so far. There were 2 in the first ball, 1 in the second. I'm an Optimus, but the third ball was worse. One knot in the first 5 yards and a second before I used half the ball. Now I've hit the third knot in the 115 yard ball. Based on its other characteristics, I would recommend the yarn. However, many people would be so irritated by the knots that they could not overlook the issue.
