I think my brain has melted. This is my excuse and I am standing by it.
A few days ago I finally finished the “Ten stitch twist” blanket. It looked nice, bright and, as a non-knitting friend said “Very Positive”.
I love it! Then I decided to make it better. I decided to apply the I-cord to give it a more “finished” look. I am not sure why I thought that chocolate brown I-cord would be the thing. As I said above – full meltdown. After spending most of last week putting on the three stitch I-cord I have finally admitted to myself that I hate the way it looks (or at least intensely dislike it. So now, just a few stitches shy of the end, I am going to sit down and rip it. The sad thing is that it did not look right to me after a very short while, but I kept telling myself that it will come right in the end. Lesson learned. Trust myself. Another lesson – not everything needs an edging.
So, now, as soon as I will pull out the brown edging (a bit over a skein of it) the blanket will be officially done.
I have to say that I loved knitting with Chroma, by Knit Picks is a pleasure. I love the beautiful colors, the softness and the loftiness of this yarn. Despite the 30% nylon content the yarn felts if you look at it cross-eyed. I will definitely try it out on some felted things. The only potential pitfalls with it is a tendency to pill, as with any loosely spun yarns and its fragility – I would not use this yarn for socks, unless the heel and the sole were made of different yarn.
