Sirdar Double Boucle Wool

Well, just thought I would share my wonderful experience (not) with you all. This wool was absolutely horrendous. It was not, I repeat not a nice wool to hold in your hands, let alone knit with. It was like knitting with straw. I can only put this down to the fact it was old wool. I would like to think that boucle is soft with little soft bumpy bits.

So this was a big mistake and the bag of wool is promptly being shipped off to the charity shop for some other sucker to have fun with. Besides, the colour looked a bit like baby poop and I didn't really like it anyway! Harumph!

Hello Bernie! Aww...I thought all wool were soft. I hope everythings turns out right for your other projects ^__^ Oh, and I'm sorry, but at the moment, I don't have any knitting dolls at http://silverb.50webs.com/ but as soon as I make one, I'll let you know. Good luck with your awesome knitting!!
