I might be over reacting to this, but when I tried working with this specific yarn, I get a sinus headache of sorts. It's not a true sinus headache though, and my eyes feel tired as well as a general headache, but it's still annoying nonetheless.
I am thinking I'm either reacting to the smell of the yarn, or worse yet, I'm allergic to it.
The yarn is Debbie Macomber: Blossom Street yarn, in Wild Meadow color (pink). It's a DK weight yarn, which is the first DK wieght yarn I've ever worked with. I's also the first wool blend I've worked with. It's 84% Acrylic, 16% Wool.
I don't know what to do, other than to put it away and not work with it anymore. The thing is, I've got 10 skeins of it (it was on sale and I couldn't resist), so it's rather disappointing to me.
