I love this yarn! So easy to work with. Here is a link to my finished project. I used the Pattern Calliope anyday anyway shawl. and used the pattern called hook. https://scontent.fmci1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/16298986_10211392105054181_4470098451173674380_n.jpg?oh=5e09438e75d4f0d13c301b89ff0e2586&oe=59006384 For those who say it is hard to frog here is a tip. Never pull.... coax the yarn. Be gentle and it will frog just fine... the little hairy fibers like to make you think otherwise. Believe me I frogged a few of the early rows several times over till I figured it out.

I'm making the Sedona shawl with the metallic opal Shawl in a Ball. I'm finding it easy to knit and love the variations of colors. Sometimes the metallic threads do separate and get missed in my stitch, but, since the knit is very loose, I don't worry about it if I only notice it several rows back. I'm finding that there is enough yarn to make a larger shawl than called for in the pattern. Perhaps my stitches are too loose? If I have leftover yarn, I'll definitely find a use for it! Love it so far!

LOVE this yarn! So soft and light. Feels like it has cashmere or angora mixed in, but really love how it's just cotton and acrylic -- easy to care for and avoids any animal fiber allergic reactions. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not discontinue this yarn anytime soon -- let it become one of your standard offerings!!! Perhaps even a bulky version would be lovely. Thank you!

This yarn make two cowls and looks great. I used a size 8 needle and knitted it with another thin lace color. 150 stitches on a circular needle. The ends want to roll up so I crocheted both edges.

This yarn has soft feel and is lightweight. One ball made a large scarf. For a shawl buy 2. I'll definitely use this yarn again.

I love how the colors change, I have made two so far and ready to start my third.. Patterns are easy and look a bit complicated but are not.

The colors are beautiful, and it makes a very pretty shawl. The only thing is that it is so hard to unravel. It knots up and then I have to cut it.
