I loved this yarn, and still do. I'm still using it. I know I could've hurried up and finished the project quickly, but I generally keep several projects going at once, and whenever I'm truly sick and tired of everything else, I turn to this yarn and project, because it is so pleasant and easy to work with. It seems almost that I can still feel the lanolin in it, the yarn is so easy to the touch, and it makes a nice, even stitch and bounces, practically, into place. It's also exceptionally easy to "tink" (take out, stitch by stitch, if one makes a mistake). I will continue to order this yarn and work with it as long as it's offered and I can afford it, because I can already think of other projects down the road that I want to do with it. Right now, I'm waiting for more of the lovely pale brown "muck" color to come in, because I underestimated originally how much I would need. Thanks for asking.
