I recently purchased two skeins of Lang Mille Colori Socks and Lace for a shawl. This was a splurge since the yarn was over $20 each. I love the colors and the feel of the yarn and was happily knitting along when the dreaded knot appears. Since it was for a shawl and this is long color repeats I had to rip back to the first of the row or the different color would stick out like a sore thumb. Anyway, got started again and a few rows later ANOTHER knot. Definitely not happy now. There ended up being 3 knots in the first skein and 4 in the second!! I started having to unwind enough yarn for each row before I did it so I could check for knots. (I hadn't wound this since it was in a ball and could be used with no problem.) I have contacted the company and we will see if they respond. Just wanted to warn everyone---it is gorgeous yarn and I love the way it knits but it is full of knots!!!
