Knitter's NotesEdit

This is one of the more popular yarns out there for felting: buttonhole bags, booga bags, Fiber Trends felted clogs and bowls.

LVolk says that it's too variable in thickness for great cabling, so she's planning a stockinette raglan sweater. I'm in planning stages for a similar sweater so I'll post here again sometime when it's done. --LisaDusseault 18:44, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

There's a Knitalong for Socks 101, testing a pattern in this yarn for a new book, and they have a whole Flickr group of sock photos.

Episode 2 of Stash and Burn discusses various projects using Manos, starting about half-way through the podcast. Jenny loves it for hats and has also made a sweater and a cardigan.
