soft and stretchy

I used this yarn for knitting a headband that had a leaf pattern. This yarn was perfect! The leafs stand out in the pattern but the headband is still soft and stretchy.

I am working on a top down tee. The yarn feels good, but I am having trouble keeping a consistent gauge. I keep moving up a one needle size since I started the knitting, even though I did made a good swatch before I started. I am not sure this would work for cables, since I am not seeing much definition. Since it is a chainette, it is a good idea to knot the tip of the working strand so it does not ravel with handling.. I think it will be very soft and comfortable to wear. I think this yarn might make great camisoles for wear under winter weight garments also.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As always shipping was fast and service was wonderful. I appreciate it when the packaging is waterproof since sometimes the package is outside for 6-8 hours before I can get it.

              Very soft, like the definition. Making a summer top. Splits easily and unravels quickly if you don't knot the ends

                          I was glad to find the skein I needed to complete a project - the retailer was one short. However, any online purchase is my last resort. Having worked in a yarn shop for 21 years before moving to a small community without a local shop, it is difficult for me to justify shopping online when I know the valuable service a yarn shop provides, and how difficult it is to maintain a small business. Also, can't duplicate dye lots online.
