I just bought some of this yarn today on ebay - 100% wool, 1100 yards for $27 + shipping! :happydance: It comes in gorgeous colors! Check it out here Be sure to check out their store for lots of other colors!
That’s really cool! I just got some ribbon yarn off of eBay for really cheap. I want to knit the Waterlily top from the most recent Interweave Knits magazine but I didn’t want to spend $27/skein for Colinette. So I got this yarn
Instead. über cheap. I’m impressed.
Very pretty! I like the color!
That is very pretty!
i love how one of the pictures says “sample of knitted/crocheted fabric”… like they look the same or something :lol:
I’ve been eyeing this seller for quite a while, but haven’t yet committed to buy. She has some good looking yarn. Can you do a mini-yarn review when you get it and/or knit a swatch? I’d love to know how it really feels and looks!
Oooh yeah, tell us how it is! I looks lovely!!
Bring Napoleon back!
i got soem fo this yarn recently and although it didnt specify fingering vs worsted weight, it is fingering weight. as im not familiar with fingering weight, i dont know if its often that the yarn sort of “falls apart” like the ply is very loose, not twisted up much. it IS soft, though.
Danielle, it’s BEAUTIFUL!!!
Oooh yeah, tell us how it is! I looks lovely!! [/quote]
I’ll be sure to let you know how it is when I receive it…I’m not big into doing swatches, but just might try it with this yarn to see how the colors knit up.
<--------------Here ya go!
The auction I won stated worsted weight. I hope that’s what it is. If it turns out to be fingering, it will be okay I guess…It would make a beautiful pair of socks!
I hate to hear that your yarn falls apart Have you tried knitting with it yet?
<--------------Here ya go! ;)[/quote]
:roflhard: I do admit, it wasn’t the same without him!!
My yarn arrived today! It is beautiful! The auction stated worsted weight, but the gauge on the label looks like fingering weight to me - 7 - 8 stitches = 1" on size 1 - 3 needles. I was hoping to make a felted purse with it, but I guess I can double (maybe even triple?) the yarn and still make a purse. I’m going to knit up a swatch tonight, and I’ll post a pic of it later. Here’s some pics for now:
Wow! That is some beautiful yarn!
Yay! :cheering: I love the marled look! Funny it doesn’t look like fingering yarn. I can’t wait to hear your review of it!
