I've got a little problem - you see, I got a sweater's worth of Rowan Summer Tweed. Figured, "hey, it's summer and I like tweed", and the composition of said yarn is 70% silk and 30 % cotton.
I'm a sucker for silk. I love, LOVE, silk but equally hate cotton. Now, usually when you have a silk blend it's nice. This stuff is not.
I hate it. Awful stuff. It works like a harsh cotton on my hands and has lots of vegetable matter in it (straw, I think - or hope). It sticks like Velcro on wood needles. I've tried to like it. I would really like to like it. I had it in mind for a nice little summer cardi, but alas, the yarn had other ideas.
You'd think it would be good stuff - Rowan is like, famous, and it looked nice in the skein. Truly disappointing. So now it's the Time-out bin for the yucky yarn. Maybe it will learn how to play nice while it's there.
