Quick help finding a thread re: stitches not "V" s
I'm a new knitter and just joined KH last week, so bear with me

I remember reading a thread just last week about why certain yarn doesn't stitch up into nice "v"s, but rather into a sort of reverse "y" (this is with stockinette stitch). Ack. I tried searching, but I'm not even sure what to search for.

This is the yarn I'm using: Ornaghi Filati, Chicco- Merino Superfine

Is this a tension thing? Should I just keep going as I am with the "y"s or start over?

I was looking through a Lionbrand catalog that I just got and they showed a sample of Microspun knit up--it looked exactly like we've been seeing with certain yarns.

If your yarn is a single ply, it will tend to do that, sometimes. I kind of like it, though.
