          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk Discontinued Colors:

          I was hoping for a slightly thicker strand of yarn in order to copy a lacy vest that is wearing out. The single strand is too thin, and doubling it makes it too thick. Am adjusting the lace pattern, but it's a little annoying, not my forte.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk Discontinued Colors:

              I purchased two colors, one is lovely and is knitting up very smoothly. My husband will enjoy the sweater. The other is for me it is very uneven, has very narrow sections often enough not to take out. Has places where it is "bally looking". Knits up in a rough looking texture. I anticipated this for a nice spring look, but it looks more like a ski cabin in the middle of winter. Very disappointed.
