A beautiful yarn !

I love this yarn ! First, I was attracted by the name of the yarn : Life in the long grass is a promising name and I was not disappointed ; I enjoy knit it ! It is soft and beautiful and highlights cable stitches. I'm very happy to work it.

Loving it!!

So far, the color of the yarn is the most outstanding feature. It has such a beautiful light to it. Love the sturdiness of the yarn while knitting and after blocking, is very soft and has incredible stitch definition. Can't wait to see how the cables on my Pyrite sweater will pop with this yarn.
