I think linknit41 and I are in the minority. I also love the end product and don't have any real trouble knitting with it. I made two small baby blankets with it and it washed up nice, too.
It does tend to split and I had a harder time with it when I was using fairly "dull" needles. I just got my options and that made a world of difference. I pretty much have only done garter stitch with it.
I just made 3 little purses with it and they're adorable; 2 with size 8 or 9 and one with size 4 needles. I think that the sharper, pointier needle made a big difference and is much better with this yarn.
