Tuesday Reviewsday: Jade Sapphire Oooh!

Oooh! in Apparition

Oooh! in Apparition

It’s been a rough week so when FedEx arrived today with a present from Jade Sapphire, I was a happy, happy woman. Inside was a delightfully soft Neckstasy Cowl kit: three skeins of Oooh! and the Neckstasy Cowl pattern. Mine was the Au Poivre set (colors 04 Apparition, 05 Wraith, and 06 Oblivion).

I was so looking forward to casting on that I made do with the US 15 needle I had instead of waiting to get the US 17 that the pattern calls for. Since I was using a smaller needle, I cast on 10 more stitches and it turned out just the right size and didn’t compromise the drape at all.

Oooh! is wildly fluffy and I was expecting it to shed like a son of a gun. Surprisingly, shedding was really minimal. Because of the loft, I would 20151124_205358highly recommend using a blunt tipped needle like the Addi Turbo. I used a Clover bamboo and the point was just right but I found myself wishing for the slick nickel coating because of the drag on the bamboo.

Overall, I really love this yarn. Working with it was a lush experience and the final product is lofty, light, and incredibly warm. I’m going to love this cowl during the Minnesota winter. The pattern was very easy and a quick knit–I finished this one in about 2.5 hours.

    This is so so so pretty. I wish I could order it as I’ll be stuck in bed recovering from surgery the next few days.
