!@#$%^ Bernat Bling Bling
Has anyone been sucessful with this yarn. I CO 22 stitches and suddenly I would have anywhere between 19 and 24 stitches on a row . This stuff is so irritating!!!!! I started over twice, cursed (keep in mind, I'm not the cursin' kind) then just loosely wrapped the yarn around the ball replaced the label and found the receipt. It is going back to the store as soon as possible.

I've only used Bling Bling with another yarn (TLC Amore) so I don't have experience knitting it by itself. I didn't like the flimsyness of it by itself. compared with other multistrand fuzzy yarns tho it wasn't really any more difficult. sorry you're having a bad time with it, Lindsey :(. I say give it another try, the fuzzyness and just the right touch of sparkle make it so pretty. I'm in love with the Sassy Sparkle colorway. here's my stuff, a garter stitch scarf and a hat made on the Knifty Knitter:
(edit: I need to resize the photo.. sorry, best I could do in a hurry is to crop the heck out of it)
