I am finishing up a pair of socks knit with this yarn.

It has a nice hand, and knits up nicely.. not splity, the stretch is not hard to work with.

i find the fabric ho-hum. I like self striping and i am ok with the spirals you often get (and the sometimes pooling) of hand painted yarns,

but the tweedy color 'texture' of the stretch does nothing for me.

It Ok, but boring. (and the sock are boring me.. its taken me weeks to finish (actually i still haven't, but the end is sight!)

the feel good--cottony--but softer..

my sock can be seen on my blog, --i am using a size 2 needle and getting a nice firm stitch.
