Red Heart Boutique Sashay Yarn

Babka NorCal 9bMarch 25, 2012

Has anyone here used this yarn? I've determined that I need to rewind the skein into a ball and stick it in a bag to knit with it. When I use it straight off the outside of the skein as suggested I THINK that is the "wrong" side of the yarn. It probably doesn't make much difference because the sparkly edge shows either way. Just knit-picking, so to speak. I just wonder what anyone else thought. Also, every third or fourth row I can dangle the plastic bag to un-twist the yarn. It sure is fun to work with otherwise.

I've never knitted with it, Babka, but I looked your yarn up on Ravelry, and there were 5 comments about it, 4 of them positive, and even the 5th one (below) wasn't so bad.

"I agree that it is a fun and fast knit; and, the results are very striking.

I did, however, have several long sections, in the skein I bought, in which the lower band was not attached to the open mesh. I had to use a tiny crochet hook and sewing thread to attach it so it was not noticable."

What are you making?

Hi socks! I'm making the scarf on the yarn label band. It only takes one skein and about 4-5 hours to make a 6' long scarf. What fun. Red Heart has a video that shows how easy it is to do. I've made several of them, but just wanted concurrence on which side is the "right" side, if there is one.
