Johnny loves it.
Crummy pictures - this is such a cute hat and was so much fun to do. It was from a Fiber Trends patterns.
Next up: three baby sweaters!!
I worked on some nonwool stuff this week. I really like this scarf - it looks like silk and reminds me of silk ruching.
I then started on some socks as a gift for a woman who helped us with some stuff this fall. What is it about socks that is so gratifying?
Well, first problem, only eight squares. I pull out each month directions and I KNOW I did May, but can't find it anywhere.
Next and MUCH BIGGER PROBLEM:
It is a hole, A HOLE - knitters do not like holes. I notice there is sand all around it and it is sticky. I'm thinking maybe a scissor did it - or a needle. But, wait, there is sand and sticky stuff on a lot of other ones. Then I see it - my blood run colds, then I sweat, then my heart pounds, I am dizzy:
It's about 10 stitches completely disintegrated on another square. What is going on? Then I see the little white balls in with the sand. It can't be. Yes, I find on the bottom of my bag, MOTHS. I am sick. Virtually every square has an area of damage - one some squares, the yarn isn't broken, just thinned. Those buggers.
Now, I have to decide, do I wrap it all up and pitch it? Do I reknit the bad squares? Do I try some repair work? I think for now I will seal it all up tight and decide later. I have always felt that if something isn't coming out well or I'm not enjoying it, to stop. Right now, this isn't coming out well and I definitely am not enjoying it. It is making me sick.
The yarn shop has a 2006 afgahn starting this month, perhaps I should just start with that and chalk this up to "experience." #@^A%$*@A@#$
