Bought the yarn & pattern five minutes after I saw it in your Spring catalogue -first time I've done that- started the Victoria Top four times for various reasons, but it is knitting up fast., & I love it.
Yarn has interesting colorways, so each (side of the) top looks different, as front & back both use same pattern.

I chose a pattern written for this yarn "Taormina Circle Vest". I did fine with the stockinet center of the vest, but the lace part was pure agony as the nubs and slubs in the yarn caused me to drop a lot of stitches sometimes not discovered until several rows later. Very frustrating!!!!!!

    I am enjoying the length of the colour repeat in this yarn. I have the sunny Sante Fe colourway and on the dingiest days of winter I immediately reached for this yarn. I love it, frankly.

      Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Tempo:

      I used this yarn to create a piece worked sweater. The finished fabric has interesting color changes especially when worked in different directions. The weight of the finished fabric is perfect for the warm weather of Florida. Finishing off from skein to skein was easy to hide and blend the yarns.
