I bought some (Capri byTahki Yarns) because I was curious about it, and to be honest I really liked the color(like old, faded fatques). I thought it would knit up into a nice summer weight shawl. Then I started a swatch, and my reaction to it in one word, yuck! Since it's 100% cotton, and I only paid $2.50 a ball I'm going to use it to make dishcloths, and pot holders. I'm not going to let it go to waste, that's for sure. I don't know if I'll ever buy anymore ribbon yarn, I think I'd have to see it already knitted up first before I'd buy any in the future.
