The Cyborg's Craft Room

| Monday, December 2, 2013
Can you believe it readers, its December!!!  I don't know about all of you but this is the first year that I think I am actually done with all my Christmas knitting early.  I must have just got the bug and finished everything.  If you have not finished, fear not you still have time.  And for those of you who are going to need a quick gift consider todays review.
Maegan is the designer and color expert behind The Cyborg's Craft Room.
I love how she sees color and puts the most unique and unexpected colors together.  You have to see her creativity in the names of her yarns.  Names like Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock or Unicorn Rainbow Glitter Fight.  No matter what color or name you fancy, she is sure to have a skein or two that you just have to have.
We have two bases for the review this week;


Fingering / 4 ply

438 yards / 100 grams
 7.0 to 8.0 sts = 1 inch

75% Merino -20% Nylon -5% Metallic
Unicorn Rainbow Glitter Fight is one of those 'just got to have it' colors because of the powerful punch in color.  She has some real skill with this color way.  I can count at least 7-8 different colors in this skein.  Not to mention that splash of sparkle that so many of us have come to love!!


Fingering / 4 ply
 463 yards / 100 grams
 7.0 to 8.0 sts = 1 inch  
75% Merino-25% Nylon
I love this one for all of you 'Big Bang' fans.  [Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard] 
Come on, you have to just buy this skein for the name alone, I love it.  I think this would make a killer pair of socks for any guy in your life.  Who would not love knitting these up, watching the changes of color and the pop of dark to bright. 
Both of these bases are very hardy and at the same time really soft when you knit with them.  I love the twist of each yarn and how it makes each stitch so uniform when knit up.  You have to agree with me that the skein of 'Unicorn Rainbow Glitter Fight' would make the best hitchhiker scarf ever!
  Thank you again to Maegan for such a fantastic review yarn!!

Is "all of them" an appropriate response? I love After the Storm and You've Got Red on You. :D
