Re: the bad yarn.

I'd rather you be honest - BUT - that said, it could be a defective skein - I'd contact the company and not fight with it. When you write to complain - I'd stress how much you love the color and the feel of the fabric once it is knit, but that it is obvious that you got a bad skein - worth a shot!

Thanks, I may contact the company, but the more research I do the more it seems lots of people have had the same trouble. It might have been a large batch that was bad.
