Updated..Yee Ha, finally used my "communion" money
Hi everyone...I finally made a "real yarn" purchase...Bought some stuff from Knit Picks today (not a real "major" purchase) but since I rec'd such a nice stash on KH a few months ago, (some Debbie Bliss, Plymouth etc) I am spoiled... Here's the question: I bought some "Imagination" (couldn't resist the names and look of the stuff) anyone use it? What for? How was it? Etc....any feed back would be awesome...Thanks OMG..just got my Knit picks package just onE word...SHWING!!!!

I just went to KP and looked at the Imagination yarn. How yummy! I can imagine socks, gloves, scarves, shawl. Have fun with all your new yarn.

It is sock yarn- I have some in the Seven Dwarves colorway.

I have balled one hank but otherwise haven't used it yet.

Cheley, what colorway did you get? On ravelry there are some stunningly beautiful lace shawls and scarves/cowls made with imagination yarn, as well as some baby sweaters, hats, mittens, and arm warmers.

Absolutely! Any pattern that calls for that weight of yarn (or that you can get gauge with that yarn!) is a possibility. I do highly recommend signing up for ravelry, though- SO much information to be found there!
