Licorice Twist

Does anyone have a pic of something knitted up with Licorice Twist (any colorway)? I've never used it before, but it's so tempting in the skein....

Any thoughts on what it is good for? Anything you don't like about it?

Re: Licorice Twist

I can post a pic as soon as I am done with the cuffs. I am knitting up a pair of longies for my son with some right now. What I have noticed so far is that it is thicker than the cestari which is thicker than patons. It is also softer than cestari but still feels pretty sturdy. Here is hoping it is sturdy any way.

I love the look and feel of it. I would like it better if it didn't pill as much as it does but it's not as bad as some others. I'd use it for just about anything except maybe longies for a crawler, but a walker I would.

I've heard it is a great, sturdy toddler yarn. And I love how the "twist" looks on a skein. Some stuff I've seen, though, the twist isn't as obvious knitted up.

Here is mine knitted up

The twist isn't that noticable knitted up.
