I got some beautiful coloured malabrigo yarn (ON SALE!) to do a baseball shirt inspired zip raglan... in a lime and indigo. I was really excited until I saw a cardi that one of the instructors at Yarn Garden, one of Portland's FABULOUS (be envious, everyone...I want to you to) LYS (we have so many here). Anyhoo~ She's a wonderful knitter, and basically, it was a beautifully made sweater...but lordy lordy, did it wear for shite: It looked like it had been rubbed about on a dirty carpet for about a month, and the sweater wasn't that old.
I expected the soft spun single would pill, but that was DIRE. What is the experience of any of you?
