I put the project on bamboo needles to see how my hands would feel.
The verdict is:
It’s the yarn, not the needles! I don’t typically use acrylic yarn because it makes me itch. It has never done this to my hands before. I suppose it’s because I’m pregnant and my body chemistry has changed.
I’ll donate this yarn to my friend Melissa, since she likes this brand so much. We’re always trading yarns back and forth. 😉
