So, I decided to spend nearly 30 bucks for two skeins of Noro's Silk Garden. I had a cool idea to knit 6 or 7 i-cord ropes, and weave them into a crocheted foundation. I have abandoned this project as the Noro Gods are apparently pissed at me. One skein had 3 knots in it! So, undaunted, I began knitting from the second skein, and realized that there is at least one knot in that one too! That's fucked up! This stuff is expensive. Dang, I guess I need to stick to lace knitting.
