Rip it, Rip it!8 June 2009
May was a dreadful month for knitting, which is why I haven’t shown you any.
I finished my Noro Kureyon cardigan, which looked like this at the end of April:
I really like . . . . the buttons!
And that’s it.
It knitted like straw, was a bit softer after washing but looks dreadful. The drape’s all wrong and it hangs badly. I’ve worn it twice and won’t wear it again. I’ll get round to removing the buttons and ripping the whole thing out so I can use the Noro for something else. I’ve only knitted with it once before and it made a good hat last winter.
So I’ll turn it into hats and bags maybe – I believe it felts really well.
Have others had problems with this yarn or is it just my knitting?
