Then I did a little more on my faux infinity cowl from months ago. This yarn is awful to work with so I'm not too excited about knitting with it. I love the color and look of the yarn after it's knitted though.
Maybe part of the problem is I'm using an interchangeable circular needle, and because of the fibers in this acryllic yarn, it seems I have to constantly re-tighten the tips almost after every round. Not fun. I do it because the alternative would be awful -- having it coming apart midstream. You cannot see your stitches with the yarn even though it's all knitted. I would never be able to find my stitches to get them back on the needle correctly. It will be the last time I buy any of this yarn.
Since I was so frustrated with the handling of this project, I decided to cast on a simple facecloth for some easy, peasy knitting. I give these as gifts, so it's always good to keep a supply on hand for those occasions. I add a good smelling facial soap with each cloth as a little Thank You gift, or "just because" gift.
That's about it for this week's knitting. I am waiting until after the busy Christmas season to concentrate on learning toe up socks on circulars. If you have been following me, you know, I've been saying that for a long time, but I WILL get there. lol
I'm linking up with OTN over at Patchwork Times. Check out what others are up to.
