knitted a lace pattern shawl with this yarn - it blocked out wonderfully and the drape is great. The different textures add interest, but they don't influence the gauge. The shiny sections in this yarn are a great contrast to the matte sections and the different colors coming with the three different textures are very subtle and tone in tone.

I was thrilled and amazed that Webs was able to match my dye lot of yarn purchased elsewhere. Beware though: This is VERY challenging yarn to work with and I have been a knitter for 60 years. Insert a life line every 4-5 rows because if you drop a stitch that whole column of stitches will literally fall right out for several rows.

Here is how I joined the ends: Thread end #1 into a large eye needle and work it about three inches through the tube of end #2. Pull the needle and end #1 through the wall of end #2. With end #1 still hanging out of the wall of end #2 use fine matching thread to sew running stitches along the 3" length of the inserted/overlapped ends. Secure the sewing thread with a discreet knot. Clip protruding end#1 and the sewing thread.

Comments about true Sanibel Overstock Colors:

The color is listed as Ivory. Looks fine in the photo. But it tends to look pink-ish when knit, which I'm not fond of.
