It looks nice.
Yarn used: Soy Wool Stripes by Patons, in "Natural Earth". F-. Would not use again. Needles: 4.25mm by Boyes. Don't buy the size 6 needles expecting them to be 4mm just because it says so on the label — it ain't so.
It's just that… well, this yarn has Issues. It splits (it's not plied per se), and then there's the color factor. The stripes are very, very pretty — but you also have to match them up precisely.
Which would be easier if the yarn didn't have constant breaks (cemented together by knots). And the breaks wouldn't be so awful if they didn't tend to splice the yarn together at random color points. Or, sometimes, you get a really awful spit-splice in the middle of your yarn that triples the width of a black stripe. Or two colors that aren't in sequence might get matched up. Seriously. This blew, and the first one wasn't a picnic, either. I won't be buying this yarn again, and I can't recommend it to you guys, either. Patons? EPIC FAIL.
On the bright side, FloppenCousin is extremely cute.
It's hard not to forgive a project when a cute sheep is atop it.
