Deep Creek: Deep Dissatisfaction
Oh look, I'm on a roll! Two fridays in a row.
Okay, that was totally facetious. I took the photos at the same time and wrote the posts right after another. Let's just pretend I'm actually on top of things though, why don't we?
I knit a Deep Creek cowl to match my mom's Tread mittens for her birthday. I had the same problems with the yarn on this as well, as well as the added trouble of terrible stitch definition. Lesson learned. Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran = bad.
I'm so not happy with the finished product on this one. The pattern was simple enough to understand (you know, once I actually read it. Apparently I made it to college without ever learning how to read), and went reasonably quickly. I only cast on 80 stitches to make a tighter fitting cowl because I had a thinner weight yarn than the pattern called for.
I'm just unsatisfied, I suppose. Hopefully mom will like it (because I certainly don't!).
