Bask Cushion Cover by Shelley
The IndieYarnStore superwash merino wool is a dream to crochet with. Unlike other, wool yarns, it's smooth and soft and doesn't split. The hand dyed colours are lovely. While the skeins I tried were 'solid colours' there was a subtle variation in tone that really adds to the look of the finished project. I haven't used a lot of wool in the past, and this yarn has me thinking I will have to change that in future. A pleasure to use.
Little Red Riding Snood by Cat
The idea for a Little Red Riding Hood inspired snood hit me as soon as I saw the colour of Rex, this gorgeous hand spun and hand dyed yarn from The Indie Yarn Store. I stitched with two strands of yarn and the finished result feels so silky and luxurious, giving the hood an extra cosy weight.
Two Sides To The Story by Christina
I really loved the yarn. The colors look very pretty and the yarn has a very nice and soft feel to them. The thread is lofty and a little bit hairy and I like that very much. The yarn doesn't split and it feels good to work with it. On a side note; it is recommended that people use a color catcher for washing since the reds in the 'jasmine' colorway and the yellow in the 'big trev' colorway tends to bleed a little.
