I just bought the lovely "Petroglyph" colorway from Lisa Souza Sock! yarn and it's making me crazy.  After winding it yesterday and knitting just one inch of the cuff, my eyes were running and my throat and nose were itchy.  Yikes. 

It's already wound up so I don't think I can wash it.  Is there anything else I can do or should I just take a Benadryl?!

The world is full of other yarn.

If this bothers you now, it will bother you on your feet.

1. Contact Lisa Souza. Tell them your problem. Maybe they'll take it back, or exchange it. (Worth a shot.)

2. Offer the yarn as a personal swap. I'd swap for it myself, but knitting socks is not my thing.

I'll swap with ya if you want!  I have plenty of sock yarn to offer up in exchange, or if you want cash or other kinds of yarn, I'm game for that, too!  PM me!  (Can you tell I love knitting socks?)

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

Yeah, if you're allergic to a fiber, even the best benedryl will not make it wearable.  Make sure you take note what fiber the yarn is made of and don't buy yarn with that fiber in it again.  Allergies suck the big one, don't they?  Sad

I know my LYS would probably take back the yarn given the situation, so you may want to call and see if you can get a refund, if you don't sell it to the girl who posted up there. Smiley
