Yarn torture, brought to you by Lion

Ok, who thought Lion Brand Suede was a good idea?  Omigod, is that a pain in the ass to work with!  The lack of give combined with the “stickiness” makes it one of the worst yarns I’ve ever worked with.  Plus, despite the name, I can’t help thinking it’s gonna worm just like chenille.  Joy.

Sadly, it’s the only yarn I have in my stash that is the color I need for a requested project, and I’m trying really hard not to buy more yarn this year, so I’m stuck with it.  I spent three hours knitting it up yesterday before deciding the stitch count wasn’t working, so I frogged it.  It’s sitting there on the table, daring me to try again.  Stupid yarn. At least it’s soft.
