Back to bouclé issues for a minute. I have been working on the Granny Pam Towels, and for some reason the cone of Peacock has been a real problem. I first noticed that it seemed more bouclé-y than the other colors. It's a tad thicker, or more lumpy, and I have had no less than three warp threads break because the thicker parts get caught in the reed, and sort of shred the core thread. So far I have fixed it, but it is a bit annoying to see some of those warp threads "hanging by a thread" quite literally. The last was was fixed with applying some glue to get the wrapping thread to stay around the core. I will be glad when this project is done, as much as I am loving the colors! Anyone else have issues? It only seems to be the Peacock in this kit, and I am sure it is not easy to spot in the yarn production process. My first reaction was that of all the cones in the kit, that one would be the strongest! It is the exact opposite though. LOL.
Glue is my friend on this! ;)
