      I used this yarn to make a baby dress from "One Sock Wonders". I have made several items from the book and have loved how they have all turned out. Soft and patterned.

        I have used this yarn to knit many pairs of socks and have just finished a pair of finger-less gloves using the remains of a ball after a pair of socks. a great matching gift set. after washing, this yarn just gets softer and softer and yet it wears very well.

        The sock I am knitting is a perfect twin up to the point close to the heel when I encountered a knot. The loss of yarn changed the ability to match. Still, it looks great.
