I had such high hopes for the new year but noooooo......the yarn gods are still poking me with their pointy sticks.
For crying out loud. This is the SECOND pair in a row that had a break in the yarn right in the middle of the ball. Grrrrrrr......In my world socks can't have joins. They get too much wear and tear. They also can't have knots because socks should be comfortable. What to do? I untwisted and then soaked the ends in an attempt to splice them.
I twisted and rubbed and rolled that join around until it passed the pull test. I can't see the splice. Let's hope it holds. If not, the recipient can treat these socks as single use. I can always make some more.
