1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Opinions on Knit Picks Swish on: August 03, 2007 03:00:33 PM
I am debating using this yarn for a sweater because it is cheap and superwash (my boyfriend likes to put merino in the washing machine).

My question is:  How is it?

Stitch definition? Feel? Is it as fuzzy as it looks in the pictures?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I have a little problem.  I'm making a sweater for my boyfriend for Christmas (I know I'm tempting the dating gods here but I'm prepared)  .  The problem is that he is a very particular man from Newfoundland.  If any of you read the yarn harlot (what am I thinking of course you read the yarn harlot!) think of her trying to find a pattern that her husband will like as my boyfriend is from a town about 30 minutes from where her husband grew up.  The thinking is the same.  He hates anything if fairisle or instarsia, it has to be one colour.  He hats anything with eyelets, anything with large cables, or motifs of any sort.  He is not a small guy so the thought of knitting so much fabric in a boring stitch is already giving me a headache.  Undecided
  If anyone knows any patterns out there that seem to fit the plain yet interesting category can you let me know.  Or share similar tales and how you solved them!

         Thanks in Advance!  Grin
