Have just returned to knitting (after 25+ year break) to knit for first expectant grandchild. Ordered an assortment double knit & 4 ply each in white/yellow/mint/blue (it’s going to be a grandson).
Just started cardigan with blue 4 ply (only as yarn arrived first) -but- having done the back and 2 sleeves, I am noticing the yarn is getting noticeably thinner, thicker, then back to what I consider ‘normal’. I’m still on first ball, as got 100 gram balls.
Is this usual? I know my memory is not what it was, but I do not remember yarn variations like this when knitting for my own babies. The yarn is: Super Soft Baby 4 ply, James C. Brett, 100g, 100% Acrylic. I purchased this (1) because this yarn has many really good reviews; (2) it was reduced in New Year Sale (but not sold as ‘seconds’).
Question is: although there is nothing noticeable in the knitted cardigan, I don’t feel (in my heart) that everything is ‘right’ with the yarn. Should I, or would it be worth, contacting the manufacturer or retailer? I don’t want to look a complete idiot if baby yarn is usually like this - but I’m sure it wasn’t in the 1980s/early 1990s.
