I have been knitting a sweater for myself using the new Lion Brand Amazing yarn. I can tell you that it is amazing, soft, self-striping and a joy to knit with. I'm using the Glacier Bay colorway. My husband even likes it. The colors are soft and muted and I find myself wanting to keep knitting to see what comes next even when I have trouble keeping my eyes open. The picture is what I have done so far. The yarn is 53% wool, 47% acrylic with a 147 yds per skein. They suggest using a size 9 knitting needle, but I like how it felt with a size 8 which is what I'm using for the sweater. I've ordered 3 other colorways to make some shawls with and I may use the size 9 with them. Has anyone else used this yarn and how did you like it?
