I did this Playbox a year ago in a different color for a Weave Along. It is, by far, my favorite yarn and pattern. It is incredibly soft, the yarn behaved wonderfully and the pattern very easy. I recommend strongly
I have not started the project yet , but what I can say is the yarn is beautiful with an amazing depth of colors . Considering the expense of the yarn I don’t want to rush into using it .
Nice yarn, but no pattern(s) or indication as to how to get pattern(s). Major disappointment.
The yarn is beautiful, but I was disappointed in the lack of versatility of this product. You do not receive a printed pattern - rather a beautifully illustrated pdf with many photos that I had to pay Staples to print. Second, there were no options for alternate patterns in case the weaver decided the rigid heddle ones were not workable. Even basic guidelines for using the yarn on a 4 shaft loom would have been appreciated. (when I asked for such an option I did not receive a reply)
As a beginning weaver with no experience in fiber arts, I need a lot of instruction. This kit was perfect. I learned a lot from Liz Gipson’s excellent, clear instruction manual, and Christine at GIST answered my other questions. I’m proud enough of my scarves and cravat to give them as gifts to my family. The yarn is beautiful and I appreciated learning about the mills that produce it. Thanks, GIST and Yarnworker!
