I was at Joann's tonight and saw a yarn there I hadn't seen before. It's called Sensations Thick 'n Thin. To describe it, its got mohair like eyelashes but every so many inches has thick fluffs of what seems like unspun yarn. It's definitely different. In my opinion, jury is still out on this one. I think I'll know for sure when I get to finish the project I started with it.

Well....I have made a chemo cap with it because it is soft. Soft, but not the easiest stuff to work with. I don't think I'll be using it for this application again. Maybe for something else. It makes the cap look like it has "bubbles".

It sounds like it would make a cute scarf, knit sideways in garter stitch, with big needles.

I've found that the Sensations yarns seem to have the common issue of looking neat but knitting up difficultly. Do let us know how this one goes.
