I don't like it. The yarn is totally lost in the lace work.
Been getting a bit disappointed with this yarn. While it's probably all my fault for not being able to pick out a design that can properly display the amazing colors, I'm starting to feel like it's turned into a high-maintenance sheep of a yarn. Yeah, it looks pretty on display in the skein but it's not pulling its own weight when it comes down to it.
I think I may need to have a break-up talk with my yarn for this pattern. Something like, "Hey, can we talk? Y'know, I've been thinking...no, it's not you, but we just aren't working out the way I had hoped. Your colors look dulled and there's absolutely no 'POP' in our relationship anymore. You deserve better -we both deserve better than this. But don't worry, you'll find another pattern to shine in. Really."
Anyway, the pro's are that I like how the colors of the yarn work in garter stitch, and I like the pattern. I could continue on as is - it's OK, but the problem is that it's just OK. Not spectacular. Not doing justice to either the pattern or the yarn. So...my choices are:
B - Rip out entirely and use yarn in a different pattern.
C - Rip out to the lace section and replace that section with a different stitch.
Choice A is out. No point in continuing - I don't like it. So I'm down to B or C. At a minimum I'll be doing some ripping, but how far to rip? I could also add choice D to the mix - rip back to the lace section and redo (the lace) using a different yarn. Hmmm.....
