OK, now that it's here, it's such a total and complete pain in the you-know-what to knit that I'm wondering if I made a terrible mistake? It's slick, slippery, and even my blunt needles are falling into the middle of the ribbon, through the threads.

So, has anyone here used it? If so, have you managed to use it SUCCESSFULLY?

Mind you, I still love the way it looks once it's knit up...

THanks!

Hmmm... I've swatched a little more, and it's still difficult to work with, but now I need more: what to make?

The Knitter's Dilemma:

The yarn is hard to handle, and the swatch looks good enough to eat!

So, has anyone at all seen this stuff? Seen anything -- other than the bell sleeved top in K'N'S -- that just knocked your socks off?

Thanks!

I really like the cute halter featured in the Tahki 2003 Summer catalog. I've never seen the yarn up close, though...just online It sucks that it's so difficult to work with, but I'm dying to make something out of the summery orange blend colorway.

Good luck and keep me/us posted about it!
