The sun is shining today. It certainly improves the mood. There are daffodils in the gardens, and that is a sure sign of nature awakening.
You may remember my Frustrating February post from earlier this month. The problem was with Stylecraft Batik yarn, which was impossible to use as it contained so many knots. One ball might have been excused, but my frustration had to do with NINE BALLS, each containing an inordinate number of bad knots – and a tangle as illustrated below!
As I worked on I collected more and more small balls of yarn
And just kept finding pesky knots!
I’ll be honest. I was in tears at one point, because this was meant to be a quick and simple project from an idea I had had at the end of last year. So, finally, I contacted Stylecraft via their website and waited to hear their response.
The black edging on the Friendship Blanket was still a problem as the weather was so dull, so I began another, (watch this space) and also started something else which you have already seen (Thirty x 2). These kept me going while I corresponded with a delightful lady at Stylecraft.
And then – a package arrived with 9 replacement balls and a handy project bag!
THANK YOU DAWN! With a concerted effort I finished it in just under a week!
It’s a soft and lovely yarn to use. You may remember that Batik Elements was used for the final blanket of #crochet6in366. If you missed the final post, which I almost did … IT’S HERE
Further details of this little throw can be found HERE.
I hope you will give this a go – it’s quick, simple and fun.
