I took a close look at that naughty sock project yesterday morning to figure out why I wasn't happy with it. I like stripes. The yarn is pleasant enough to work with and those are some new Caspian needles that are really pretty. As soon as I had knit a row I figured it out. Yarn barf.
Ever since I dropped my winder and had The Mister fix it I can't seem to wind a decent cake. There is always a mess in the middle which creates tangle upon tangle as you try to pull from the center. Instead of knitting I rolled the mess into a ball which made a world of difference. Miss Sock is now on the toe.
Since Daughter gave me a Knit Picks gift card for Mother's Day I guess I know what I'll be buying.
