The yellow cardigan will be frogged and the yarn will be reused for a blanket that I am now working on (very slowly).
I tried to block it, tried to dry it with dryer balls in order to soften it up. But, to no avail. The fabric is so stiff that the sleeves puff up weirdly, the hem won’t lay flat, the seams are stiff and annoying, and the whole garment was heavy and unmoving.
Above are some pictures of the blocks that I am thinking for the cotton blanket. It would be for the bedroom, and I would just eventually hope that through lots of washing the stupid thing will soften up.
Thank you for everyone who gave me positive comments on the cardigan but the project was just relentless with the annoyance. It happens though, right? I still love this DROPS pattern, but this yarn is just not right for this.
I hope everyone else’s projects are going better than mine!!
