My friends, winter is showing no signs of letting up, even here in North Carolina. We were blasted with 5-6″ of snow the other day. If you’re from a northern state as I am, that may not seem like much. But in the south it is a significant amount and is cause for much celebration … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday – Porthole Cowl

Classic Shades is soft and it isn’t shiny like some acrylics. It is a good alternative to some of the expensive yarns I love and it’s more washable which is nice for gifts. I haven’t had any trouble with splitting. I will definitely use it again.
I really liked working with Adore. It was easy to knit with. There were no frays or knots and it was not splitty. I would definitely work with this yarn again. Great for kids things.
I personally love Classic Shades Sequins Lite and the way the colors striped, love the little bit of bling.
