I am very disappointed that so far every skein I have used has a knot where two yarns have been tied together -- thus keeping my "what would have been one piece lovely cowl" from being a one piece without knot cowl.

    Comments about 6.49 Encore Colorspun:

    I knit socks for my grandchildren. This yarn is not only easy to knit up, it is also durable and warm. I made socks 3 years ago for my grandsons and they wear them everyday in the winter and they have held up great. They look as good as the socks I knit this year for the younger two grandkids. I love the colors of the yarn and the softness. It's my go to sock yarn.

                This yarn was a perfect choice for a blanket or scarf. Great weight, texture and washability. Easy to work with. Plenty of color choices, too.

                    I am making an afghan for my son and daughter-in-laws new home. They have two large dogs that lounge with them. I wanted something pretty, but that was very servicable. This was just the thing. The varigated colors were also intrigueing. A good choice.

                          With this particular color it was had to find the repeats, but I love this yarn and make lots of baby gifts with it, especially blankets

                            Am knitting a "Wallaby" hoodie sweater that called for a worsted weight. This yarn has a wonderfully soft feel & knits up beautifully. Have not washed it yet, so don't know how it will wash up.
