It's still okay


So I didn't freak out and suddenly rip out my sweater. At least not yet. I am liking the way the collar is shaping up, and the color is still speaking to me. I really do not like how much this yarn (Mainline from Knitpicks) sheds, though. After I knit for a while, I am covered in little pieces of red fuzz. And these fuzzies pill up on the surface of the knitted fabric too. This may start to piss me off alot, as time goes by. However, I only paid about $20 for the yarn, so I'm not really going to complain too much. Hopefully I will reach the part where I divide out the sleeves from the body soon. I do love knitting top down sweaters!

the collar looks great!!! and for the shedding you could always get a sweater stone... or one of those shaver thingies :-)

I LOVE KnitPicks yarn, it's cheap and tough, but it all sheds. I guess that's the downside to saving some cash...I'm excited to see how that collar looks on the finished sweater.

Thanks everyone! I will probably have to sweater stone this one alot. But I agree, the inexpensiveness of the yarn probably makes it worth it.
