          Everybody I know is trying arm knitting, and most people are using horrible acrylic super bulky yarns. Grandiosa is the good stuff. Two skeins, doubling the yarn, will make a wonderful infinity scarf in about 20 minutes. The colorways are really pretty (I used Sierra) and the yarn feels scrumptious. Cast on 6, 8, or 9 stitches depending on desired width.

          My daughter-in-law selected this yarn for me to make an afghan for her living room, as the colors were perfect. I'm knitting a loose open-worked pattern and am finding two troublesome aspects of the yarn: (1) the afghan is not as soft as I expected; and (2) the yarn sheds all over my lap as I knit. I'll show the partially finished afghan to my daughter-in-law but I may have to abandon the project, because I doubt that she'll want it shedding all over her living room sofa. I'm upset because I spent over $200 buying non-returnable yarn on a close-out.

            A pity the shipping to Canada is so expensive as well as the customs taxes!

                  I used this yarn to knit a vest. It's very warm without being too bulky.

                        I bought this yarn to make a afghan. The Merino wool and Alpaca will make it a warm gift. I'm using # 15 needles so it knits ups quickly. The strands don't separate and the stitches are well defined.

                              I made an absolutely stunning and unique arm knit infinity scarf with two hanks of this. I have gotten so many compliments! This yarn is super plush and 2 strands together makes a generous looking arm knit scarf. Love, love, love this yarn. Great colorways too! I may order more to make another scarf next winter.
