I'm pretty sure you already know what I detest, lol. And that you might be able to guess one of my new favorites. ;o)

I love the necklace! Very classy.


That's a thick & thin yarn. I always wondered if yarns like that were originally a spinning mistake, and somebody decided maybe people will like it that way? If you can't stand it, don't waste your time with it.

Oooo, that variegated purples Katia yarn is soooo pretty! Love the pattern too.

What an interesting idea on the necklace, to disassemble one you don't like and make it into a new one! You are soooo talented!

Have a great day everyone!


I love the necklace and the lace pattern in the Katia! Sorry about the annoyances with the Zelda, ugh.

For the record, I loved knitting with the Main Line I traded you for. It made a really fantastic fabric and knit up really fast (I finished an entire sweater in <3 weeks, which for me is amazingly fast).


I agree, if you aren't loving knitting with it, dump it. Besides you already made something for your Bio-Mom that she never wears. I'd dump it and find something else you don't mind knitting with. Love how the Katia Idea is coming out.


LOVE the necklace. Hematite is one of my favorite stones.

I saw the sale... and I want some Main Line, too... I just have to figure out what would be a good project to use it on.


Thanks, Jill. ;) And yes, I can guess your least favorite yarn. It's at the bottom of my list too!

Margaret - Yes, I've used thick/thin yarns before without problems but this time there's just something different. But - life's too short to knit with bad yarn, eh?

Jess - I'm so glad to hear that Main Line worked out for you. Like Leisel, I'm trying to decide what project I'll use it for and order accordingly. :)

I'm totally agreeing with you, Wanda. Although it's hard to say "no" sometimes - especially when it comes to family & knitting!

Thanks, Leisel - I should be able to wear it with lots of things...'cause my main wardrobe color is black. ha!

What color are you going for with the Main Line? I'm leaning toward the Dusty Lavender.


I'm especially liking the Red Velvet Cake. Surprisingly, though, this is one line I really like most of the colors in. I could easily see me doing something with the Butter Pecan or Antique Rose or Blueberry or Dusty Lavender or Cocoa, too. The only two I'm not very interested in is the Silver Sage and the Ink... Ink isn't a bad color, but black does NOT Look good with my skin tone at all... makes me look very washed out and witchy (and not in a good way).


Good for you! There's too much lovely yarn to spend time knitting with something so awful!


Wow, that fishtail lace is gorgeous! Beads will look fab with it.

You necklace is quite wonderful too. I just recently went through all my jewelry and put aside quite a few pieces that have just been gathering dust, which I'm going to cannibalize for new and improved object d'art.


I felt that way about Euroflax linen, Philosopher's Wool, and most especially about the yarn in a Habu purse kit. Abandonment is not a character flaw!


I don't think I've ever totally hated a yarn, but I recently finished a bag made with a 50/50 wool/hemp blend and let's just say...I gave the rest of the yarn away with the bag. :)
