I love the long color changes in this yarn for crochet projects. I wouldn't knit with it. It doesn't unravel easily, and I'm not a proficient knitter. The colors are beautiful but inconsistent from skein to skein in the same dye lot.

i find the 'halo' to be almost too much, and the yarn is terribly 'snaggly'. i have found lots of tiny knotted joins in each skein.

otherwise, the 'cedar forest' colorway is very pretty, and my 'february lady' sweater will be a pleasure to wear because of the cuddly softness.

although i have knitted with more frustrating yarns than this, i doubt i would use it again unless it came in at some ridiculously low price.

    Comments about 8.50 Classic Shades:

    This yarn is fun to knit with! It self-stripes in unpredictable ways. I'm glad I picked a pattern that is knit from the bottom up in the round so I won't have to match seams. I chose it for 2 young children's sweaters and am very pleased with how the first one is turning out. The pattern is the Baby Regiment Sweater and is easy to follow.

      Comments about 8.50 Classic Shades:

      Coloration is great. I used 2 strands held together as a substitute for more expensive, bulky yarn to make a very warm poncho. I love the colorful design when used in this way. However, two strands of this yarn is painful on arthritic hands.
