Malabrigo laceweight != love

I’ve made no secret of how little I’m enjoying Juno Regina, and that it’s all because of the yarn. I was really hoping I could just get an adequate scarf out of one skein of Malabrigo lace. Sadly, that’s not going to happen, because… well, take a look at this ball I’m working from right now.

Yep. It’s sticking together something fierce. I’m pretty sure a good half of this ball is so felted together, it’s completely unknitable. So, I guess I’ll have to wind that other skein after all.

On the plus side, it’s a little more tolerable now that I’m working from the outside of the ball. Yes, I actually turned this one inside out. (I don’t recommend doing that for less sticky yarns, by the way. The “turning inside out” part, I mean!) I still have to pause a lot to separate the working strand from the rest of the ball, but it’s not as terrible as working from the center was.
