The yarn is Mary Maxim Step It Up sock yarn. I wound it into a ball to check for knots. I hate knots, especially in yarns with long lengths of color because you know there's going to be a knot that ties together two drastically different colors. Well this yarn blows, I found three knots.
Come on. Seriously. I've always thought and will always think that any yarn with any knot(s) in it should be a "second" and sold at a reduced price. That's one of the reasons that I live spinning my own yarn- NO KNOTS!
