I think it is important to again point out this yarn is fast so if you need more control using bamboo or wood needles may be a good solution for you. I found using bamboo with this yarn slowed it down a touch which for a newer knitter or for someone who is not use to using finger weight yarn and/or small diameter needles using bamboo may be a good solution.
For the Abuse Olympics
It was in the middle of the pack. The integrity of the yarn held well as it was frogged. No plies broke. The area where it did not pass as well on is it fuzzes quite a bit after two to three frogs. By five frogs it had a fairly pretty halo effect. The yarn also has a lot of memory once it is knit. My ten stitch, ten row Olympics swatch, which only takes me about three minutes to knit up retained some of the waviness from being in the fabric for even such a short amount of time. So if you decide to frog a project even after you have only knit an inch or two you will want to soak and hang the yarn to dry in order to remove the waves from it. When it comes to unknitting this yarn does great. It comes apart just as easily as it goes together.
Making a Project
Whether knitting in the round or flat the yarn is friendly to work with. It does not distort or stretch unpleasantly. When you want it to give it gives and when you want it to hold it holds. I got one sock done and am currently working on the second. When the second is done I will update with a picture of the pair.
