Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 is really testing my love.
This week I have been in the process of knitting a wrap with a ruffled bottom edge, my own design, that I winkled together last weekend after much trial and error.
In the middle of the medium rust portion of the colorway, I encountered a knot. No biggie — I untied it and reattached the yarn, then wove the ends in. After doing this, it did not show at all.
But I was knitting along yesterday and encountered another knot. This knot tied the deep rust color to a brown color and the difference in the colors was noticeable. I repeated the same procedure and knit on a bit in hopes that all would be okay.
It was not.
There is a very obvious line of demarcation where the manufacturer knotted the two colors together. And I can’t live with it.
And the new color is much thinner than the previous color.
So rather than continue with this skein, I restarted my project in another colorway.
I will admit that I had decided that I wanted to make some adjustments to this piece, so this is an opportunity to rework a bit of the pattern. That’s the silver lining.
But Kauni? I have used and loved your yarn many times in the past. But with that last skein you have sorely tried my patience.
This new skein had better be considerably more well-behaved. So far, it is the Kauni I know and love.
Now I have to break it to Lucy that she does not get to keep her new favorite perch.
It is all drama here Chez WendyKnits.
