The project I selected to knit for my review of Knit Picks Shine Worsted Yarn was the Little Sweetie Dress by The Crochet Crowd. I used a size H hook as per the instructions and three balls. Let me say that this yarn is absolutely gorgeous! The color is so close to the granny smith apple, and the subtle sheen makes this machine washable/tumble dry low yarn ideal for almost any project.  This was a very pleasant yarn to crochet with. It flowed effortlessly through my fingers. The feeling was soft and smooth. I had no issues with it knotting up, especially after unwinding several yards. I expected to encounter the yarn splitting because it was so soft, but it was not an issue. The plethora of colors (27 in all) is to die for! The quality of this yarn is fabulous! I definitely plan to order more of this yarn, especially for making the Little Sweetie Dress in the future.
