Re: knitting--my yarn is splitting!!

Some yarns just split. Carons simply soft tends to split a lot for me. I just keep truckin'. You have to slow down a little and make sure you aren't knitting too tight (or it will split more). It's a pain but I haven't had issues with the finished knits when I am done.
