Reserved thoughts

After 60+ years of knitting, I have experienced, for the first time, yarn breaking mid row for no apparent reason - twice! And I am only 1/3 thru the first skein?? Inconvenient to say the least. Other than that, the yarn is beautiful as it works up and I imagine the bed runner I am knitting will be wonderful.

Great for sweaters

One of my favorite sweaters was made from Nightshades and I would happily make another. from it It knits up beautifully and the color pops in the sunlight. It makes for a wonderfully cozy sweater.
