Help! I bought a bag of 10 sk of Valley Yarns Casablanca from Webs. The colors were so beautiful that, before I even used it, I ordered another bag in a different color
. It is a very satin-y nylon that slips and slides all over the place.
Welll today I started using it and I can't work with the stuff at all! It's so slippery it doesn't even stay in a ball (or a knot). If you don't watch your work every second it will come right off the needle. I'm even using circulars to minimize "escape routes," but it doesn't help. And if you loose a stitch, f'getaboutit, you're doomed. It will zip all the way down your work before you even know what is happening. :(
I dont think I can return it to Webs....maybe one of the bags, which was bought w/in the 30 days, but then they take out your discount and you pay for shipping and, when all is said and done, you don't get very much back.
So... what do I do with 20 balls of pretty but impossible ribbon yarn? Anyone ever had this problem? Do I double it up with a less slippery yarn?
I'm thinking maybe I should try using it to crochet something, b/c crocket basically "binds off" every stitch.
