Wow you guys, thanks for all the responses! Ingrid~~ "homeshun" is hilarious. I'll try bigger needles and will loosen up the tension, but I know in my heart of hearts that I'm going to be struggling. We were all so impressed when one of the gals in my knitting group purchased 7 skeins for .99 cents apiece at Michael's. We each got a skein so we coud begin baby blanket squares. She said that we were going to LOVE the yarn (she's used it before.) My only hope is that the other ladies are strugging with it too. Actually, I'm PRAYING that they're struggling. I'm envisioning a huge bonfire with each of us tossing in a skein, then laughing wildly and, what the heck, howling and dancing too. Would roast marshmallows, but, darn those plasticky fumes.
Anyways, it's great that some have had success with it, but it is also good to know that I wasn't the only one having difficulty. I honestly will try with those suggestions.
Thanks again everyone!
