I purchased some gorgeous handpainted chenille yarn many years ago...and what a train wreck! I admire your ability to knit with chenille. I never did master it! I ended up crocheting a scarf with part, and giving away the rest.
Thanks! I think the secret is the needles. I use 5 mm, very smooth needles with rather sharp points. At this point I also prefer natural fibers but sometimes I still can can do acrylic. I also have a strange addiction to single-ply yarns so maybe this explains my tolerance for chenille
