I had ordered it online from a yarn and craft catalog. It's called On Your Toes with Aloe in the color Carnation. I'm not sure what it is about this yarn that I don't like, but I just don't like the way that it looks or feels.
I had thoughts of using it in this pattern, because I'd only have to use a little bit of it for the toes and the cuffs. This yarn has been kicking around in my stash forever, because I just can't bring myself to throw it out. So, I've completed the toe and I'm about ready to switch to the white yarn, but I'm hesitant because I really don't like the way the toe looks or feels in this stuff.
Some other knitter out there has a signature that says, "Life's too short to knit with ugly yarn." Maybe I should rip this out and start over with a nicer yarn, and finally pitch this yarn in the trash.
