Do not adjust your brightness control. This pink really is this shocking. In fact, it is probably even brighter than it looks here. I bought it very cheaply at a local boot fair. It weighs just under 300g and seems to be a 4 ply acrylic.
I like rescuing unloved yarn. It's only later that I think about what to do with it. I rarely knit with 4 ply yarn and, when I do, it is usually something delicate for a baby. This is too bright for that. So, I could combine it with another yarn for a speckled effect. Or I could knit with two strands to make it roughly equal to a double knit yarn.
I have no works in progress at the moment. I think I will use this pink shocker next. This afternoon, I watched a version of "Jane Eyre" that I hadn't seen before. Probably because there are already so many versions of this story, the director spiced it up a little by using flashbacks which don't appear in the original novel. My eyes were, therefore, fully occupied. But my hands whiled away a couple of hours by rolling this yarn into smaller balls.
Now I am ready, just as soon as I decide what to do with it. Any suggestions would be very welcome!
