I started this scarf a while back, with the intention of wearing it in February. It's a really pretty pink and a hopelessly soft cashmere.
I decided to use a slip garter stitch pattern, which is simple to do, it's just been frustrating with this yarn. When I made my first mistake and tried to reverse what I'd done I found that the process of knitting was actually felting this yarn a little bit- it was totally stuck to the stitches around it!
I started going extra slow to not make any mistakes and looking for blocks of time where I could concentrate on only the knitting. I had a business trip to NY and the train ride was perfect- it was then that I realized (in my black suit ready for a business meeting) that this yarn also shed excessively. Bright pink fluffy shedding.
Then I made a mistake and didn't realize it for 4 rows. It's been almost impossible to get the yarn back out so I've left it and haven't touched it for a while.
Now that it's getting close to Valentines Day I'm thinking of starting to knit on it again but...
I am nowhere near being done because I had to knit so slow and it's going to be a pain the get this mistake fixed. And it sheds- a lot. But it was an expensive yarn, and it's still impossibly soft and lovely.
I just don't know if it's worth finishing! Any thoughts?
And don't forget- Sunday starts my Blogiversary week of giveaways!!!!
