I am stubborn. When something doesn't work out right, I usually go whole hog and try to MAKE it work to the point of making myself crazy. I am determined to make something out of that Den-M-Nit yarn I have. Last night I pulled it out of the grocery bag hidden in my yarn room and tried a new approach. Bigger needles and a simple sort of lace pattern. I knit up a swatch and sometime this weekend I'll throw it into the washing machine to figure out the shrinkage. No screaming or throwing the yarn across the room was involved, so things are looking up!
