Buoyed by the success of the Cropped Cardigan, I started making it in a nubbly thick thin wool/silk blend. I have 300 yards in this particular colorway, and thought it might work well. I was wrong. I think it looks like hell. Too, mmmmmm, stringy? I think so-and plan to frog it unless I get a "No, don't, that's freakin' awesome!!!" out of someone. I'm a little pissy because I've knitted over 150 yards, and I am REALLY not impressed with the look of it. Trouble is, I have a lot of this yarn in smaller quantities-maybe 6oo yards in a few colors. Any good ideas? If I stopped, and just made a little teeny bolero, would it be better? Would ANYTHING make it better? Besides matches, I mean.
