I actually have not knitted the shawl yet that I bought the yarn for...can’t wait! Have a few other things to finish first.!
Can’t wait to start knitting with it!
I am happy with my yarn, just needeing one more skein for my project. I sent an separate email with the lot number I needed but received a note saying that going into the warehouse was not advisable and they were very sorry not to be able to match this lot. Could you please add a line in the otder form re lot number needed? I understand Deramore's response, and am pleased with the message back acknowledging my request.
Started my project and the yarn is a dream to work with! I am not usually a fan of Tweed yarns but Rowan has created a beautiful colour palette that I could not resist.
I like this yarn!
