I said I wanted to do some yarn reviews; I've been slowly putting them into Excel, and decided I should probably start posting them here. This is MY opinion, and only reflects what *I* feel about the yarn. Your mileage may vary - you just might LOVE a yarn that I can't stand. It's what makes knitting so much fun :grin:
Yarn Name: Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock
How Knit: Hand AND CSM
When Knit: 2003 and 2009
Specs: Hand: 64 stitches on size 2
CSM: 72 stitches, moderate tension
Care : Machine wash; can be thrown in the dryer, but I try to hang them to dry - they seem to last longer when air-dryed.
Longevity: CSM: 1st pair knit in 2003. Still going strong - no holes, no wear showing.
Hand: 1st pair knit in early 2009. Still in good shape.
Notes This yarn knits up well, both on the CSM and by hand. It feels a little flimsy on size 2s, but I really don't want to go any smaller. It's held up well, so far. The colorways are inspired, and (usually) knit up in cool patterns. A little pricey for some budgets, but WELL worth it, IMNSHO.
