This yarn is so beautiful and soft to the touch. Prior to the first project that I made with the Berroco Vintage, (a blanket for my Mom for Christmas using Tide Pool and Breezeway) I had been using yarn from a craft store, but I don't think I'll ever go back. It knits up quickly, and the stitch definition is beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft it was when it knitted up, and while I used it to make a blanket, as previously noted, I will also be using the remaining yarn to make a pair of mittens for myself. It was also discountable, so this beautiful yarn was comparable in cost to the yarn I was buying in craft stores.

The one thing I would say negatively about the yarn was that in some cases there was less yardage in the Tide Pool color than the Breezeway, but not enough of a difference that it affected the project that I was making.

This yarn and I did not get along. Usually I don't mind yarn other people call too splitty, but while I was making increases, or even knitting straight, Vintage split and I had to carefully watch every stitch. I went through every type of needle I had to try to make this yarn happy.

          My sister's favorite color is indigo so I chose this yarn for her Christmas scarf. It is very soft, knits easily and she says it feels comfortable next to her skin
