Don’t you just hate it when yarn is rubbish?
I started on this knit for Flo a week or so ago:
And it hasn’t grown much because the yarn is so horrible to work with.
The yarn splits and bunches and in half a ball I have had to deal with 4 knots already. The yarn is King Cole galaxy double knit. Maybe I have just been unlucky with a duff ball of yarn or maybe it is just terrible yarn. If anyone else has used this yarn then I would be interested to hear if you had similar problems.
Flo loves the look of the cardigan and loves the purple and black thing that this yarn has going on so I really should persevere with it.
I like the style of the cardigan and once I get it done with this yarn I might try it with some other DK yarn. The pattern can be adapted to a round neck front and long sleeves so it is a good pattern but the recommended yarn, thus far, is horrible to work with.
Other than that all is quite here, Flo goes back to school on Wednesday so we are having a quiet couple of days now and then I have got lots to get on with as soon as school routine returns mid-week.
I hope your week has started well.
