veronik avery, you magnificent bastard
This pattern is totally kicking my ass. I ripped it five times. I finally have it going right, and I think it's going to be too small. But by god, I'm going to finish the damn thing, now that I've got it going right. If it's too small for me, it'll fit someone's kid.

In other news, Rowan Tapestry is really soft, but terribly slippery. Addi Naturas are totally the way to go here. Push comes to shove, I'll use this stuff to make some gloves.

That's a super cute pattern. Veronik Avery is usually cruel and kind.

I love Rowan Tapestry, but damn that stuff sheds. and splits. But oh so pretty.

I haven't had too much trouble with the splitting, but I hear you on the shedding.

Damn, damn, damn... why did no-one tell me this before I bought any? *woe* Bought 5 balls of the stuff for a christmas present for my sister, only to find out she's allergic to wool...

I think its the soy that sheds, not the wool. But, yeah, the wool content is probably going to be problematic.

But so pretty!

Probably. Doesn't feel very wooly to me, but other people might be more sensitive.

yikes! That looks like that pattern would eat me alive!

I need to try some Rowan yarns and break out of this Knitpicks funk. :P
