Miles of chenille

You may remember the Bernat Blanket  yarn that Yarn Canada was so nice to send me a few months back….

I’d started a simple feather and fan baby blanket with it… but I’d forgotten how much I hate knitting with chenille.

All those sticky, stiff K2TOGs were driving me crazy, and I knew if I wanted to have a baby blanket to enter into the fair, I’d have to do something drastic.

So I frogged it.

And I cast on again…

This time for my Bias Garter Afghan. And it’s going MUCH better. While I might not like knitting with the yarn, I love the feel of it knit up. And I do love those pretty stripes.

It’s a super-bulky yarn, so if I keep at it, this should just fly off the needles. Here’s hoping…

    I bought something like that at the MDSW on a whim one year. I had the same thoughts about it. I wonder what I ever did with that ball of stuff. I know I didn’t knit with it. I think I wove something out of it but I can’t remember what.
