    Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

    Made an ombre shawl. Knits up nicely in the seed stitch. I think my choice of fiber could have been a bit better though as it is a sock yarn and might be alittle bit rough. I haven't washed it yet though.

      Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

      I do a lot of lightweight shawl/scarves. I don't like yarn that itches and I often get too hot with most yarn (I'm in the South). I love merino superwash; light weight, airy and soft. Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock is wonderful to knit and it knits up fast! Makes a beautiful gift, colors are bright and cheery. Only wish there were more solids to be more creative in color schemes. Great price with WEBS discount so I can blend and spend! Going to try fingerless gloves and leg warmers next.

        Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

        I started using Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock early this year and it has turned into my new favorite yarn for light weight scarves and shawls; on my second shawl now. Knits up quick and the hand-dyed color is always perfect for my needs. Colors are bright and cheery, yarn quality makes knitting quick and easy. Shawls can be tedious, however the feel of the yarn makes me want to knit and knit! I have not used Madelinetosh Light Twist as substitute although that's my next project!

          Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

          I read all of the reviews about this yarn, one wonderful lady mentioned that it is her favorite sock yarn. So I was more willing to pay the higher price than for some other yarns... When I started knitting with "Tough Love Sock", my husband said "That is soooo pretty, you should knit a sweater out of that!"
          I'm using the dark purple, and every time I pick up this project, I revel in it's beauty! The transition of color is like a crystal! The texture is incredibly soft, especially for such a strong yarn! I have bought most every "sock" yarn out there, and while this Sweet Georgia - Tough Love Sock Yarn, is not cheap, it is FANTASTIC! Well worth the price! There are NO NEGATIVES! This is the VERY BEST SOCK YARN I've ever used, or expect to find, as I can't even imagine how it could be better! :)

            Comments about SweetGeorgia Tough Love Sock:

            I'm making the Litchfield shawl, stockinet on size 7 needles, and Tough Love Sock is working beautifully. Very soft, in spite of the nylon, and I would not hesitate to use it for mittens. Plus the color Birch is perfect, exactly what I wanted, an off white that has a little more interest than "off white" implies, but not so much that it seems to stripe. I've run into no knots, it doesn't split or snag, and knits evenly and looks beautiful in the shawl. I'm really pleased with it, both color and texture.

                  I ordered this yarn as a substitute for Kollage's Sockalicious to make a shawl featured in your Fall catalog. I am very pleased with Sweet Georgia. It is soft and drapes beautifully. The lacey design of the shawl is just as lovely as that pictured in the pattern. The nylon component makes it stretchy and easy on the hands. Mistakes are easily fixed and I am definitely a fan!

                      I love to knit socks and the best sock yarn I have used is Sweet Georgia Tough Love -- it is soft, not splitty, fabulous colours to choose from, knits up beautifully, and it's not itchy! I have made socks using many, many different yarns and Sweet Georgia is my favourite, by far.
