Once upon a time, a fellow yarn lover described working with linen yarn as "making me look like a horrible knitter." This sentiment is true during the exact moment when one glances down at the fabric as it comes fresh off of the needles. To anyone under-experienced with the stuff, there is that feeling of failure. A fear that nothing wearable or useful will ever result.
The stripe of the Tencel® looks perfect as it is knit. So far I am extremely pleased with the progress, the mixology of the two different fibers and joy of working lace weight on a size 6 needle.
Life is good - have no fear.
