I'm weaving this up into a couple of scarves and am extremely pleased with it. The yarn is pretty and surprisingly soft and will only get softer after washing. There wasn't a single knot in any of the three skeins I purchased which makes me very happy. It also is just the right weight and texture to hide all joins. Like all denim, it should go with everything. A quick and fun weave.

I started out with a cute bolero pattern that was designed for this yarn. Since this yarn is 100% cotton, the pattern stated to expect about 12% shrinkage after washing and drying (which was taken into account in the pattern). Though the pattern was 'stinkin' cute, and my daughter would have loved it), I found it to be too complex for me to endure to the end, so I ripped it out.

However, I was still intrigued with the yarn (being made from recycled jeans) so I decided to make a simple lacy scarf, using large size 13 needles on two strands of Riveting. It turned out cute and my daughter really likes it, but the shrinkage in lenght was about 18%, not 12%. At this point, I still have 3 skeins of yarn left, so I will try making the same scarf with just one strand and a bit smaller needle so as to be lighter in weight and a slightly tighter knit.

I think possibly the difference in the needle size affects the amount of shrinkage. I was expecting to be able to make some things to sell, but with an unstable shrinkage factor, it would not be profitable. For personal use, if you like a good challenge to create something with this unique yarn, I say, 'go for it.'

    Comments about Koll�ge Yarns Riveting Sport:

    I have been wanting to use Riveting in a top for quite some time but was put off by the price; however, the recent sale made a sweater quantity a reality for me. The color, Lava, is a little strange (more of a dusty rose), not quite what I expected. However, I will wear my top and enjoy the comfort and practicality of this yarn. It is a pleasure to knit, and, so far I have knit two skeins without any knots or frayed places. The skeins have generous yardage so that I anticipate having more leftover yarn than I thought I would. Oh well, this yarn can also be used for weaving.

    Comments about Koll�ge Yarns Riveting Sport:

    Much stronger than I would have thought for recycled cotton. Super soft, slightly tweedy. Too many knots, but easy to deal with. Made an awsome summer top with great drape and stitch definition. Tends to stretch horizontaly and shrink vertically (in stocking st) so make necessary adjustments. Overall exceeded my expectations!

      Riveting Sport is wonderful to work with. I used it for Brooklyn Tweed's Waterford and Hitch patterns and was pleased with the stitch definition. The weight is good for warm weather garments. I will definitely use it for more projects.

            I was a little dubious when I saw the write-up for the yarn. But, it is fun to knit with. Used it for a two-color hat and was pleased with the results.
