What is Bernat knit and knot? Is it like a novelty yarn? I have never seen it in yarn shops or stores like Jo-Ann or Michaels. . .I'm thinking novelty yarn, and I just wanted to share a story of my battle with "eyelash" yarn. To make a long story short, the Eyelash won.
I had to abandon the project, which is unusual because I am a very determined and dedicated knitter!
I tend to drop/gain/lose stitches when I attempt to knit with novelty yarn (this furry scarf was a simple stockinette 22- stitch thingy) --and when I tried to frog, I found it impossible.
I rationalized that if I am not enjoying what I do, if I'm doing this for fun and love of the craft, which I am
then I just have to accept that I have a tuff time with some yarns.
I like my good ol' 4 weight yarn best of all. I am currently working on a pillow in Bernat SV
in Bronze. I chose to do what is called Andalusian stitch (k row 1; purl row 2, k1p1 row 3, p row 4.) Simple, but nice and elegant looking. I am enjoying it a lot so far. I was going to do Trinity stitch, but I wanted a quick project that I could just chill out with.
Please share pictures of your current projects! Happy Valentines Day!
