So it goes

Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s the yarn, or maybe it’s just fate. I don’t know. But I spent two days trying to untangle the Patons Kroy yarn I’d been using to knit my Hedera socks, because it was a complete unknittable mess. I mean, I spent all of Monday night and the part of last night I wasn’t at a friend’s birthday party untangling and untangling and I ended up breaking the yarn. And I just. Gave up. I’m 3/4 done with the first sock (AGAIN) and I’m tired of the yarn and I’m tired of the pattern. I’ll get a better sock yarn in a nice solid color and try again when I’m ready, because it *is* a pretty pattern.

I took it off the needle and wound my pretty Koigu into a ball (some untangling necessary there) while watching the wonderful, wonderful election results (even with the rain, the world is a more hopeful place t his morning). Tonight, I’ll start a plain stockinette sock to best show off the variegation in the Koigu. And then I’ll work on my shawl.
