The yarn that you just can't seem to find that perfect project for?
The yarn that you can never get the right gauge with?
The yarn that you must have been crazy to purchase?
The yarn that has been frogged so many times it has that funny halo?
Oh, surely I'm not the only one!
This is Regia Hand-dye Effect, my outcast yarn. It is fingering weight 70% wool (scratchy wool...), 25% nylon, and 5% acrylic, so I was already destined not to like it because I strongly dislike most yarn with that much nylon and acrylic content.
It also has this odd thread plyed into it (to balance? to make it hold together? to make it fancy?), which drives me crazy. At the time I probably bought it for the colors, perhaps I was mildly intoxicated as well, who knows?
It has almost been three separate pairs of socks and a shawl, and each time frogged violently. I've been gradually trying to force myself to do something else with it. Seeing Lisa magically turn her skein of this stuff into the most gorgeous Wingspan certainly gave me courage.
So now every last yard will become a shawl (Azzu's Shawl), which will not be immediately frogged, if it's the last thing I do!
Now come on, I can't be the only one with problematic yarn
