Is there such a thing as yarn mojo?
I have been trying to knit from my stash. I just finished Rusted Root from Cotton Fleece stashed for over a year and a half. So when I saw the picture of Stefanie Japel's Petal, I went through my stash to pick the yarn. I found some Cotton-ease. This Cotton-ease was once Sitcom Chic and then frogged. I have knit Something Red with part of the stash and never wear it. It seems that no matter what I knit with it, I am disappointed. Is it the yarn/pattern combo or could it be that the yarn just has bad mojo? I have looked at other yarn options at the store- Moda Dea Silk 'n Wool and Cascade 220 Paint. Any suggestions? Do I just give up on Cotton-ease and get the mojo out of the house or do I give this yarn a 3rd chance?
