- It is inexpensive.
- It comes in about a billion colors.
- It is readily available from the Knitpicks website.
Which begs the question of why am I designing in Knitpicks Stroll, specifically, and Knitpicks yarn in general. The fact of the matter is Stroll is a good, solid workhorse sock yarn. It is soft enough, durable enough, fairly average fingering weight yarn. It comes in all my favorite (read: all the) colors. If you needed something for colorwork for a kid, it's superwash. It makes very nice socks. No matter how rich (ha) I get, there will always be a place for Stroll in my stash. It's not the best sock yarn ever. But it's a good, serviceable yarn that gets the job done. It looks good for a great price, is easy to get, and oh yeah, the colors.
