Gedifra 4201

i got a ball of yarn and thought how great this stuff feels. Well it looks better knitted even than it feels. I am using smaller needles than my usual ones and cast on 72 stitches. It really makes a difference in what size needles you use as to what you end up with. I read that lots of times on blogs about pooling and trying different sizes with different numbers of cast ons. but I never really saw it before.
The color knits up into the neatest blues and pinks and creams in bands on the sock that i ever saw. You can't wait to see what you will knit up next. Pretty, cheery colors. I had almost stopped using skinny yarns because of my eyes but the brighter colors make it easy to see and work with.
I want to try 3209, 3210, and 4212 too!!
It is October already guess what all my family will get again this year?
this would be the perfect baby sweater yarn too especially if you didn't know if it was a boy or a girl.

Family better get you-know-whats! It would be a disappointment, for sure, if they didn't! Very, very lucky family, indeed.
