Topping Supreme

This is the beginning of my Cable-Eight Top. I'm working it in Universal Supreme Cotton. I love this pattern! It's so easy to memorize and there isn't even any shaping to deal with although I think I will alter the neck some as I don't like anything tight against my neck. I will probably just make a slight v. We'll see when I get there. This is the back so I still have time to think. Not as much time as it looks though because that little bit of progress up there was what I accomplished Saturday evening just before bed. I knocked out a couple more repeats yesterday so it has more than doubled. July 1st shouldn't be any problem at all.

I love the feel of the yarn. It's so soft and really doesn't feel much like cotton at all. Do you feel the but coming? BUT, I've found so far (and since you hold 2 strands together throughout I can't say for sure if it's just one skein or both) 8 spots where just several plies of the yarn have been knotted together as well as 1 full-fledged knot. I can't even begin to tell you how much that annoys me. I'm hoping it's just one skein and the rest will be better to work with.

Ya' know, I started a project once in a similar cotton (plymouth fantasy naturale), and found the same thing! Not all out breaks in the yarn (well, I had those, too), but breaks in just a single ply that were rejoined with knots. Drove me bananas. I failed to persevere. I hope you stick it out, though! Looks like it will be lovely.
