Messy Frogging

Remember that mysterious swatch of stockinette in my last post? It was a project in the same yarn I from the dye lots post. In the dye lots post I mentioned that I had frogged that particular project. Well, I spent all the time between those two posts working up the yarn in what I thought would be a more appropriate project…and then yesterday I ripped it all out again. I think the simple truth is I just do. not. like. this. yarn. It makes me a little sad, because it used to be a lovely line of yarn. Back into the stash it goes until I either find a perfect project (eye roll) or trade it for something better.

Between all that ripping and some house-buying drama, I was in serious need of some relatively mindless comfort knitting. My travel project became my main project last night. I suppose that created a bit of a silver lining – now I finally have an FO I can show off on the blog immediately. Yay socks!

    The angle of the stripes on those socks is sort of mesmerizing. Do you get distracted by them as you walk?

  4. These look great. Great proof as to why we need lots of projects on the go at once!
