          Everybody I know is trying arm knitting, and most people are using horrible acrylic super bulky yarns. Grandiosa is the good stuff. Two skeins, doubling the yarn, will make a wonderful infinity scarf in about 20 minutes. The colorways are really pretty (I used Sierra) and the yarn feels scrumptious. Cast on 6, 8, or 9 stitches depending on desired width.

          I realize that I am taking a chance when ordering yarn that might be a different dye lot than the yarn that I already have. However, this wasn't even close. The yarn that I received had almost no variation in color compared to the usual distinct color variation with this yarn. I felt that what I had gotten was seconds (rejects). I wouldn't order again.

                I made an absolutely stunning and unique arm knit infinity scarf with two hanks of this. I have gotten so many compliments! This yarn is super plush and 2 strands together makes a generous looking arm knit scarf. Love, love, love this yarn. Great colorways too! I may order more to make another scarf next winter.

                                      I bought this in three colors and knit a hat yesterday. It made a very heavy, thick hat which I need for the cold winter. It used one and a half hanks for the hat, so didn't go very far, but I love how thick the hat is. I had no trouble with the colors, they are beautiful.

                                            I bought three of these at an incredible price at the end of year sale and knit up a big cozy infinity scarf on size 17 needles. It turned out beautiful - my 21 yo daughter loved it and now her friends are asking for one too. Nice and soft and warm and quick to knit!
