I'm always up for a new yarn at a local yarn shop. Several of my friends are knitting or planning to knit with it, so I thought I would give it a try for an afghan for Baby H. It's 40% superwash merino wool and 60% Acrylic, so it's a great choice for something that may get washed lots. Touted as an alternative to Encore, I have to say after knitting most of my blanket with it, I am still a fan of Encore.
I am using my Knit Picks metal needles on it and granted they have a pretty good point on them, but I found that the Pacific yarn had a tendency to split. Many times I had to rip back a stitch to get all of the strands back on the needle. Some I did not find until I was way past the point of return.
The other annoying thing? It had a lot of static to it.
