          Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

          I am on my second sweater using this yarn. It is sunning if you use 2 strands together. First sweater was size 8 needles, now using size4 for tight, even gauge. Fabric is still soft and stretchy. Tried sweater with one strand and it looked sloppy, thin and was taking forever.

          This yarn tangles and knots to itself terribly. By many failed attempts I found that it works fine if you take it from the outside of the ball. Do not attempt to pull from the center.

            • Supersoft

            Cons

            • Slippery

            Comments about Knitting Fever Painted Desert:

            This yarn has a wonderful color change between 2 colors. The spring green changes from green to purple and back. I have another one not listed that changes between dark pink and purple. Very subtle.
            I made a lacy triangle shawl with it. While knitting it was very soft and squishy, very fine for fingering. But then it blocked out great and shows all the details beautifully.
            I want to stress again how soft this is. It just says 'superwash wool' but it feels like merino with silk!

            Planning a plain garter stitch shawl. The colors are wonderful, the yarn is deliciously soft, and I can't wait to see it worked up!
