I tried to find the previous thread on this and couldn't.

OK, I don't hate it as much or for the same reasons as most other people do - that it snags. Mine hasn't snagged too much. But it becomes unraveled as soon as you knit with it, with loose loops all over the place! It looks pretty sloppy. Also, it doesn't go very far. And it's stiff, so if I'm doing any kind of unusual stitch (in my case, p3tog), my hands hurt!


My name is Carie and I'm a yarnaholic.

I haven't commented on cotton yarn before, but this is a good opportunity. I just don't like cotton for knitting PERIOD. I made a cardigan out of the Mission Falls yarn and what a pain. So although I don't know this particular yarn, I feel your pain.

BTW, I thought it was just me, but I'm reading the Yarn Harlot and she complained about cotton as well.

OMG - I just bought one skein of this stuff and you're right - it unwinds as you knit it. I frogged what I'd started and now it's in my stash drawer until who knows when.
