This is an awesomely fun yarn to see in skein form, and to knit with. But at the end of a project you've got 1000 ends to weave in! Every time they change yarn in the skein, there's a knot. Unless you're going for the funky hippie look, those knots need to be untied and the ends woven in. Too much work!

I use the Prism yarns in scarves and shawls and I like it quite a bit. It really is unique and the color blends are amazing. The ends do need to be trimmed or woven in for a finished look but I kept a few of them out and beaded them (as suggested in the "Working with Prism" letter). It really added to the artistic qualities of the piece.

The ends can be woven along the back, knots intact, as you work. Because the yarns are mostly fashion yarns & blends, the knots do not tend to pop to the surface. Few that I know actually untie the ends.
