Is there bad yarn?

Yesterday i started a scarf for Nicole. The yarn is a kind of what you call 'fluffy'.
But it is not nice to work with it:(
it is so fluffy that i can't even see what I'm doing, and to work every st is a nightmare. I just have to count every st to know that i don't drop any during the row!
Well I've got 5 balls of it, Paulo bougth the yarn. So i will do the scarfs for my girls, and it will be it!
No more fluffy, cute, warm yarn.

Here you can see the detail of the string. I think it is too much hairy.

Cozy cups!
I just found this beautiful pattern on the net here, She calls it the Mug and French Press Jacket.

But you know me, i loved the pattern there, and i even started to do it, but then i just changed for one of my favourite. These pattern is from socks.
They are the 9 to 5 socks, and you can find them here, i just fell in love with the twist off the knitting with out doing that thing with an extra cable needle.

Today it is all.
Hope everybody has a nice Sunday.
See you now now

wow, I checked out the non-cable twisting (watched the video!), and I'm going to have to try that! I love how cables look, but man are they a pain!!

I never liked eyelash yarn. I was at Michael's yesterday, and they have a whole bin of that exact type of yarn on sale for $2!! I guess we know why it didn't sell and had to go on clearance, huh?

I agree on the eyelash yarn as well. I have only 1 high-priced boutique skein left, don't know when I'll use it but I'm sure not buying any more. Those mug cozies are adorable!!!

Me too, I hate knitting with that very fluffy yarn. If I have to, I use the biggest needles possible.

The mug cosy is very pretty! Thanks for posting the link to the pattern.

That sort of yarn is a pain to knit with. Using ordinary yarn in a suitable colour at the same time (hold both strands together) can make it much easier to knit with.

That yarn does look difficult,but the scarf looks so wonderful!!!

I'm a HUGE coffee drinker and love the cup cozy! I might have to knit those up before cold winter days!

I've promised myself not to buy any more novelty yarn! I still have a stash of fun fur which will eventually be made into scarves but it isn't a priority. LOL!

The mug cozy is precious :)

...and the round pillow is gorgeous!
