These socks in the yarn that i hate. I got so close to finishing them. I was down to kitchenering the toe closed on the last sock. But that yarn. THAT YARN. The kitchener wasn't working out well because the yarn stuck to itself and wouldn't pull through. Then the stitches came off the needles which is bad news with THAT YARN because stitches are not only difficult to see but they are almost impossible to pick up. I have given up. I have ripped back hours of work. Hours of mentally and physically painful work that i am not willing to re-live. I have half-frogged the sock and i am putting it away somewhere where i won't have to look at it for a very long time.
I am starting something new tomorrow, something that i will enjoy knitting in lovely yarn. Something tells me that now is not the time to start winding a skein into a ball. One knot and i might just have a nervous breakdown.
I actually feel sick.
