This is for the lay-knitter, not professionals. This is for people like me who might not necessarily be fiber experts despite being a crocheter or knitter for a long time, but need an honest opinion about yarn before they dive into a project with it.
The yarn: Vijay Fibers Serenade (variegated skein) and Grandioso (green skein)
328 yards, 299.9 meters
100 grams, 3.3 oz
- 100% Eri silk (both skeins)
The Project: Viewfinder Cowl by Tin Can Knits
What I didn't like: There is little to complain about. I was pretty mad when I found a knot in my skein of Serenade (the variegated yarn). If you've read my review of the Vanna's Choice you know how much rage I get when I find knots in my yarn. Especially expensive yarns like this. So when I found one, I was pretty mad. But that is my only complaint.
Affordability: I bought my skeins on sale for $60 total. They are usually $35-45/skein depending on whether it is solid vs variegated.
Rating: I think this yarn is beautiful, albeit way out of my usual budget. That knot though... I just don't know how normal that is for this yarn. 4/5 stars. I would definitely buy this again when I have the chance.
