I used Noro Kureyon Sock yarn because I thought the colours would work lovely with the shawl. The colours are lovely but the yarn was a disgrace. There were 5 separate knots in the skein and parts were so thick that I had to cut it out because it just looked ridiculous throughout the normal parts of the yarn. There were also organic fine stick pieces in places that made it feel like needle pricks. The yarn tangled heaps also winding back on itself every time a little more was unwound from the skein. It was really horrible and slow and annoying to work with. I usually love Noro yarn but now that I have come across a bad skein myself, I know why many people don't like it. The pattern was easy and quick to complete so overall this was a great project.
I love to crochet. It's fast, easy, relaxing and rhythmical. I don't seem to do much of it but that is mainly because many of the patterns are not to my liking but this is another crochet shawl that I love. It will get a lot of wear.
