What would you do if you had a very special skein of yarn that refused to be knit into anything???
I have tried the Ginkgo shawlette, Balm for the Soul shawlette, and the Holden shawlette. I have ripped this out so many times...I have *almost* completed the Holden shawlette, but I don't love it.
Would you rip out a perfectly good knit? I am thinking I would try the Swallowtail shawl next, but am hesitant to frog this sucker, since I worked so hard on it. Also, I hate knitting for nothing.
The problem with this skein is that it is small, 360 yards, but it goes a lot farther than you'd think it would, since the yarn is Handmaiden silk and cashmere, and is knit on smaller needles to keep the stitches from flopping around. After knitting the Holden shawlette, I still have half a ball of yarn! Another problem with this yarn is that I bought it on vacation, paid a lot of money for it and it has the sweetest memories attached to it, and I cannot bring myself to give it away. Le sigh, if my biggest problem in life is that I have an uncooperative ball of yarn, things can't be too bad, but I'd love some advice!
