Nice Yarn

I made a hat with this yarn (Elmwood) along with the Lion Brand Jean(Stonewash) yarn and they made such a beautiful hat. I loved working with this yarn.

Preliminary report

I am knitting a vest with Hay Re-Tweed. I like the "tweediness" of the yarn. I am only on my first skein, but was somewhat disappointed to find several joining knots, the first within the first few rows. But that shouldn't be surprising--after all, it is RE-tweed. It has held up to reworking (I am prone to mistakes) satisfactorily. I like the overall (light) weight of the piece I'm working up, and looking forward to wearing the finished project.

Like this yarn

It's not soft (but pliable), it's sometimes not easy to work with (due to the number of plies), but I really like this yarn. I make table mats and coasters with a Gansey design and it really looks good and is sturdy. After soaking, things soften up some. I also like the idea of recycling.

Nice

This was my first time using this yarn. It worked really well for my project and I like the flecks of color in it.

Feels like cotton

This was my first time using Re-Tweed, and I was surprised that with 40% wool composition, the yarn felt so much like cotton. I used three earthone colors - Peanut Butter, Elmwood and Grapefruit - in combination with purple Wool-Ease for accent touches to make a textured-stitch crocheted sweater. Very happy with the way the sweater turned out, but I won't be ordering this yarn again. Not my favorite of all the yarns I've purchased from Lion. (I also found joining knots in my skeins)
