But, I love Halloween and you can't honestly call yourself a crocheter who loves Halloween if you don't even bother to check out something as cool (in principle) as glow-in-the-dark yarn. So, I read some reviews and found out that the yarn had been getting a 3.5 out of 5 star rating on Ravelry. I also found this:
It really does glow in the dark! The texture is reminiscent of Bernat Satin – a silky shiny acrylic yarn. In comes in pure white and baby pastels: pink, yellow, green, blue, and lilac. In the colors, you can see the white glowing strand twisted around the colored plies. It would be a neat accent yarn for intarsia, but is soft enough make a beanie or entire sweater, too!The consensus on Ravelry seems to be that the yarn does glow pretty well although the texture may not be appropriate for larger projects. Well, I just had to try it after that.
I ordered a few balls from Mary Maxim yesterday and am eagerly awaiting their arrival. If you're interested in trying it out, now is a great time, too. Mary Maxim is offering the yarn for $2.97 each (regularly $4.99). There are also some links to free patterns on the Mary Maxim site... I'm thinking of trying the ghost family when I get my yarn. I'll keep you posted with how it works!
