I'm making a scarf for my sister's birthday and this is working up very nicely. I'm really enjoying it and would buy again.
First time knitting with this yarn, Berroco Vintage and I quite enjoyed it. Great stitch definition, color, and soft. This particular yarn was chosen to create a Covid Memorial Blanket for all those Canadian souls we have lost in this pandemic. Check on the internet if interested in participating. As for future projects of my own I will add this yarn to my go to list. Cheers!
I had a friend help me with turning my skein into a ball when we came upon a break in the wool! That was disappointing. The wool is soft and the colour is quite beautiful though. I don't know much about tension when it comes to spinning wool, but this feels a bit looser than others I have knit with if that makes any sense. It felt a bit like the wool was going to unravel in some instances although it didn't.
