I bought some Noro Silk Garden for my full size Clapotis. I had seen Kureyon at my LYS, and a finished Silk Garden raglan, but not actually seen Silk Garden yarn. Sight unseen, I bravely ordered some from a Canadian discounter.
When it arrived, I was dismayed to learn that it was filled with twiggy bits. I ordered yarn--not shrubs! I started on Clapotis, and it's going sloooooooooowly since I've got to pick out all the twigs and leaves. Aroo?
There's a part of me that wonders if this is a life lesson. Like, should I just zen out and knit it with the crap in? Or should I meticulously tweezer out every bit and give in to my inner OCD?
I posted on Craftster and one gal said she picked out all the bits. I went to my first local SnB and showed them the Noro and they exclaimed, "Oh, pick out all the stuff but it's so worth it because the finished product is so beautiful."
I must be a glutton for punishment. How on earth did I manage to find more work in a hobby that was supposed help me decompress from my job??!!
