I am very impressed with the performance of the Cascade 220 for the turquoise sweater. It knit up evenly (the stitches) from the get-to! It was not me, it was the yarn. After blocking, the appearance of the stitches are perfect. I'm very impressed with this yarn. Way to go Cascade 220! I'm looking forward to knitting the lemon yellow Cascade 220 Heathers in my Stash!
The stitches for the purple sweater looked much better after blocking.
It was a pain to knit with sorta. It had way too many white hairs in it. I know. I know. It's Alpaca...but all the extra hairy thingies were a nuisance.
