Arrivederci

 The sock blank that Daddio dyed for me last fall was being turned into some crazy leg warmers but I just wasn't feeling the love.


 They were meant to be socks but they were turning out too big so I thought rather than ripping them out turning them into leg warmers would be a good solution. Not. Socks are what I really had wanted so socks they needed to be even if it meant spending hours of frogging and re-winding.


 This guy helped a lot but it still was a major pain.


I do love how the yarn comes off the blank. I am going to be sad not to be able to knit from the blank since I had to pull it all out but I think I am going to really like the socks it becomes.

  1. I completely agree...if you're not feeling the love, rip it out!

  2. Frogging isn't much fun, but sometimes it has to be done. I've never knit from a sock blank. Looks like fun.
