Yarn: Bernat Boa, found at JoAnn's for $5/skein. 1.75 oz=50g, 71 yards. Soft mink color way.
I've only recently used novelty yarn for the first time a couple months ago. The first thing I ever used it for was my first Need A Hug Bear.
The eyelash yarn was so soft and luxurious in the skein. It looks fantastic now that it's a bear. But knitting with it was tedious, to put it nicely. If you've never used this yarn before, here's what you're missing:
|What your stitches look like after spreading out on the needle.|
|Knitting with it.|
|You definitely want a row counter for this yarn.|
Doesn't even look like there's 22 rows there.
|Can you see my dropped stitch? Yeah... Neither can I.|
Isn't that fantastic:
|If I ever have the opportunity to learn how to spin, you can bet I will never make roving.|
I did a lot of complaining in this post but I do think the end results are definitely worth the trouble.
