Incredibly tricky yarn

Incredibly tricky yarn

I bought this yarn at the tail-end of 2006, and attempted to use it straight away. About 10 rows in, and I'd had enough. I unravelled the lot. As you can see from the picture, every couple of centimetres or so has a twist of 5 different coloured threads woven in to the main thread; this made it really tricky to see the stitches on the needle. The test piece that I was knitting was a complete disaster, and the unravelled yarn was destined to languish in the drawer.
