I like the color choices of this yarn. It lends itself nicely to lace work and of course socks. I have used this yarn for the Swirly Shawl in several shades and am quite pleased with the finished projects.
One caveat is that the yarn likes to split if you are not paying attention to the tension while you knit.

I used this yarn to make a pair of legwarmers. The pattern was poorly written and it turned out I had to hold the yarn double to make it work (no fault of the yarn).

The pros: I absolutely love how the finished product looks and feels. It is soft and squishy, and I believe they will keep the recipient's legs toasty warm. The gradual color changes are beautiful blends of red and violet.

The cons: I absolutely hated working with this yarn. Each strand is really two strands of different colors twisted together rather loosely. This results in constantly splitting each strand. Now consider that I was working with two strands held together; this meant that there were effectively 4 strands to each stitch. Generally I do not have a problem with split stitches, but I did it constantly with this yarn, even once I was aware of the problem.

    This is a very nice, fine weight yarn. The color changes are gradual with long runs. I used it to make an openwork scarf for a friend who spends the winters in Florida where it can be cool in the mornings and evenings.

      Comments about true Melody Superwash:

      I love the colors in this yarn. Since I crochet, I never had a problem with the yarn splitting, but I could see how it would happen. I bought this yarn with a specific pattern in mind. The pattern called for a fingering weight yarn. No matter how small a hook I used I could not obtain the gauge with this yarn. I happened to look up the rating on Ravelry and they list it as a 'Light Fingering' weight. I would put it somewhere between Lace weight and light. I finally found another pattern calling for a Light Fingering yarn and my gauge matches up perfectly. The texture is nice and it frogs well. I would recommend this yarn to others, as long as they know the weight. I'll probably be buying more myself in another color-way.

          Comments about true Melody Superwash:

          I bought this yarn for a pattern I had that required 'fingering weight' yarn. No matter how small a hook I used, I could not make the gauge. I tried a couple of other patterns for the same weight and the same thing happened! I went to Ravelry and found that this is listed as a 'Light Fingering' weight. I finally found a pattern I like for this weight and sure enough, the gauge matches. The yarn itself is beautifully colored. I would recommend this to a friend, but I would be sure to let them know that it is more of a lace weight than a fingering.

              So sorry to say this yarn for socks is terrible. Very course and terrible texture--not soft at all. I was surprised because the worsted weight yarn is fabulous.

                I've used JoJoLand in both worsted and melody before and love watching the colors play out. The yarn is good quality and knits like a dream. Out of multiple projects I've found 1 knot that was a color break. Compared to a lot of really expensive yarns this is a great advantage. I picked out this color for a new grand-son and am going to use a pattern that swirls.. I can't wait to see how the colors work!

                    I bought this yarn to knit a pair of socks, and once finished they were delightful! The color change as I went along was a joy to see, and the yarn itself was easy to knit (though maybe a little splitty). However, I only got to wear those socks about three times. I wash my handknit socks in the machine (warm or cold water) and hang to dry. These socks felted after the third or fourth wash to the point that they had lost all elasticity and were too small to put on my feet. I love this yarn in every other respect, but will not buy it again. Superwash should be superwash. If I had known they would felt, I would have washed them by hand.
