I am using this to make an afghan with a feather and fan pattern. The striping is not so colorful that the pattern gets lost. It has good stitch definition and is not too drapey or stretchy for a large heavy project. I am a little disappointed that it is not as soft as I expected, but it may soften a bit when washed. It is easy to knit with and would be a good choice for a beginner. It is the thinnest chunky weight yarn I have ever met. However, that is no big deal with this project. I just used a smaller needle and bought some extra yarn. At this sale price you could afford to whip up a couple of afghans for the price of one. But I don't think I would ever trust it to substitute for another yarn on an item where guage actually mattered like clothing. Stick to blankets and shawls with this one.
