Worst and most favourite yarns?
I sat for over 2 hours today with Mr Mog trying to wind Colinette Silky Chic yarn into a ball. Gave up after said time with 4 tiny balls and a tangled mess. Photo at left. This is going to Colinette Monday to see how they wind it. Its not the cheapest yarn, it has a wonderful effect mixed with mohair in shawls but its a b***ger to wind. I've had a fair bit of silky chic over past few months and eventually managed to make into balls, but this one beat me. I won't be buying any more.
my most favourite yarn is colinette also, Colinette Mohair. I love the colours, I love the feel of the yarn as I knit and I love the finished effect.
Ah well, I'm off to start a fire shawl in Colinette mohair and the little silky chic I have. Photos in a couple of days when its finished. Weather here is red hot and I think a cool drink and a seat in the gazebo overlooking the forest and castle is just the ticket:))
And Michelle? I'd love some koolaid thanks and would gladly trade for something Scottish??
