Had a bit of a false start with Rowan's Cinnamon today.
The yarn arrived yesterday, and I was so excited! Just looking at the romantic little Rowan labels made my hands all itchy. So I grabbed my pair of 4mm needles and carefully took one of the skeins out of the bag. I cast on, but wtf? My thread was stuck?! D'oh! I couldn't get it untangled to save my life.

Enter Hank. What I thought was a "skein" of Rowan Summer Tweed was actually something they apparently call a "hank", and demanded to be treated accordingly. (Yey for places like the Knitty Coffeeshop forum for all my newbie screw-ups.)

Anyway, Hank's in a tangled mess on my bed but I’m not touching him anymore tonight. Bleh. Not now honey, I have a headache.

What a lovely cardy that Rowan's cinnamon! I'm also a newbie when it comes to knitting so I probably would have done the same with the hank! Sometimes it feels good to know that one isn't alone :-)

Hope you will post about your progress with the cardy
