 Nice yarn. Soft but different to knit with.

I happened to have a washcloth pattern, and I am a beginner. This is only the second project I've made, so it was an experience for sure. The only things you have to get used to are the fact that this yarn is frailer than the average twisted yarn, and the yarn clings to itself. On my first casts-on, it broke. But better sooner than later right? It broke once more, but I was in a bad mood so I blame myself. The yarn clings to itself and needs to be pushed around a bit on the bottom edge of the needle. I didn't have any serious issues with worming, a couple of stitches here and there might be a bit bumpier, but nothing serious. Also the pattern was balanced between knits and purls, so if yours is either purl or knit heavy I would take caution with worming. Aside from the obvious, this yarn is great, soft, yet still good for exfoliation. Machine washable is a plus. For chenille, it is quality. My only complaint is that the ball comes unraveled kind of easy, but I'll plan ahead next time, because I'm definitely buying again.
