I just read the note about frolicking in this yarn. Too funny, but true! It's sumptuous and I NEVER use that word. I'm knitting a poncho with it and using a falling leaf lace pattern - great stitch definition. Unfortunately there's not much yardage and since I'm not following a pattern I bought far less than I realized I needed so I just had to buy more. I'm already in deep so by the end of my project I'll have a $240 phoncho!! It'll be great though.

Dont make a mistake

I used this to make a Classic Beret which has a lace pattern. It is impossible to rip out to fix mistakes because you cant see the space in the center of the yarn...Read complete review

I used this to make a Classic Beret which has a lace pattern. It is impossible to rip out to fix mistakes because you cant see the space in the center of the yarn where it came off the needle, since it is sort of pre knit. Made worse by the fact that I was using charcoal grey. Just maddening ! Beware.

        Pretty colors - not for textured work

        Cons

        • Poor stitch definition
        • Stretches

        Best Uses

          Comments about Rowan Lima:

          Enjoyed working with this yarn, but the FO does not have as much stitch definition as I'd like - cables, etc. don't show too well. I'm not sure if it's due to the yarn texture or the color (I used one of the heathered ones). Either way, I will likely work with it again for something with a simpler stitch pattern.

                I enjoyed so much working with Lima after making a very long infiniti scarf (honeycomb pattern), that I made two Molly hats and another cowl. Am going to knit another hat and possibly cowl with it.
