Its done - Yarn Along

Joining in with Ginny
Weekly sharing of a book and a knit.

Guernsey is off the needles, ends sewn in and buttons on, oh those buttons, just the cutest things.
Some adjustments to the pattern, seed stitch rather than rib to end of sleeves and waist, seemed far more in keeping.
Still love the softness of the Rowan cotton, the colour and stitch definition but it splits,catches and pulls a lot, maybe not a yarn I'd choose again, ah, cotton and I, just not a happy mix.
Enid Blyton, Children of Willow Farm is coming to an end, suplimented with endless piles of Julia Donaldson, Mick Inkpen and all those good reads.
Me, I'm same author ( Lee Child ) different Jack Reacher tale of adventure.
Happy days.

I don't especially enjoy working with cotton either. I'm working on a huge cardigan with a cotton blend yarn and I'm having the same experience you just described.

Hooray for finished projects!

mm we have similar taste in children's literature! We're currently half way though the BFG, my big boy and I, but we have had the highway rat this week too. I do all the voices. I agree with you about the cotton yarn, it's not for me either, but the end result does look gorgeous!
