I read somewhere (a blog maybe?) that it's unpleasant to work with because it's not very stretchy. Would you disagree with that assessment? I've been wanting to try it, but I don't usually like cotton because I need my yarn to be springy. I was hoping the wool and nylon content would help.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
