Symphony

January 26, 2005

I am having a love/hate relationship with this yarn. I love, love, love the color which is persimmon. Although, to me it looks like a rust color. I love the texture and how soft it is. This yarn is just gorgeous. However, I hate that you can’t pull a stitch out if you mess up. It appears that as you are crocheting with this yarn the fibers bind to each other like a velcro. If you try to pull the stitch out it knots and then breaks. I have been trying to make a shawl out of this yarn and after 4 attempts have had to start over. I probably could do it if I wasn’t distracted by my husband and kids every 2 seconds. If you see this yarn in the store I guarantee you will fall in love with it like I did.

  1. I bought some River Blue & Earth Brown of this yarn. It’s been sitting in the closet waiting for me to finish other projects first. Velcro? Yikes! I guess I’ll just have to be very careful with it and to make no mistakes as I go along.
