I finally finished this triangular shawl out of an acrylic yarn that looked like Mohair but was so soft and not itchy. It turns out I was very dissappointed in the stiches as they appear very irregular and normally my knitting is just the opposite. Very smooth. I don't know if it was mistakes I was not aware of in working with it or if it was the fact that it was a commonly known brand yarn but found in the local dollar store. I just loved the feel and color of periwinkle and thought I could make this as a Christmas gift for my wonderful neighbor who makes my coffee every morning. It turns out it is not of a good enough quality in the stiches to be given as a gift so I will move on to another project.
I don't know if things like this happen to others who knit from time to time, but it is very discouraging when so much time is spent on a piece. I usually go to the more expensive yarn shops and have seen this yarn there. I'm glad I did not pay the premium price as I would have gotten the same result had I bought it there.
But it is certainly pretty enough for me to wear when I catch a chill while watching tv.
Hope all your projects whether they be knitting or paper arts or whatever, turn out just the way you hope.
