i am knitting a multi color terry cloth bathrobe?

for those of us who have owned a chenille sweater, you know how wonderfully soft they are and the temptation to knit one is huge.

here is the pattern (no it is not a bathrobe but a cardigan)

the yarn: araucania quellon hand dyed yarn in coloring 08

not sure about the chenille, so i am going down a size in the needles in case it sags. fell in love with the yarn when i saw it but came to my senses after i looked for a pattern that would be able to carry off hand dyed yarn & the difficult drape of chenille.

i am knitting two rows and alternating a skein to blend the yarn because there are huge differences in the coloring…. i am not optimistic.

the alternate: something i know i will knit quick and love for no reason at all.

a bunch of radishes...

Oh good luck my fellow knitter. Chenille and I have gone to war before and I lossed, miserably.

I wish you all the luck the knitting gods can offer for a lovely, soft result:) :) :)

It looks lovely so far. I can't wait to see how it turns out. The radishes are looking promising - can't wait to see those, too.

Chenille is the comfort food of yarn.
