I haven't tried double knitting. So far, stranded and intarsia have kept me satisfied with my colorwork projects.
I have used both Swish and Gloss, although I've only made socks with Gloss so far. Both are warm. Swish is more practical if washing is a consideration. Gloss really should be washed by hand, as it tends to felt in the machine. (My socks from Gloss are OK, but the pattern isn't as pronounced.) Gloss has a nice sheen to it. (Before felting, that is, LOL!)
I'm enjoying the Bees' Knees, too! The steeks are done, shoulder seams grafted, underarm sleeve seams and bottom facing of body and sleeves done. Right now, I'm knitting the second front facing. It won't be long now!
I'll be interested to see what you do!
Sharon, I have Gloss in my stash but haven't used it yet. I do like the Swish and I find it nice to work with. I agree with the others that it depends on what you want. Whether you need an easy care or want a dressier piece.
Since I don't know enough about double knitting, this is just a consideration that comes to mind. There really isn't a whole lot of difference between worsted and DK. But I would think getting the same gauge with DK as with the worsted would make for a wee bit looser fabric. Anyway, IMHO, just something to take into consideration.
Sharonknits, I'm sorry that I did not see you already had a discussion started about double knitting. I'm new here & did not scope it out fully before starting my own link. I have no experience with the yarn you are inquiring about, but as you can see in my post, I'm doing my own little projects with every kind of yarn in my stash to get the feel of them for working double knit. that is the best way I know to tell how it feels & the ones I am making can be passed off without feeling I have wasted my yarn & time. After all its hard to go wrong with the look of a little mug mat.
Don't worry about it, Patti. We often have a lot of cross over!
