I did mention how much I disliked my latest pair of socks yes? I still can’t put my finger on why, it is a yarn I love, in a weight I love, in a color I purchased for a reason. No pattern issues, that was pretty too. I just didn’t like them.
Fortunately for me, I have knitter friends who sometimes feel the same way about their socks. And sometimes, that happens at an opportune time, and the stars align just right and a worthy trade is born.
(Actually, those of you who know me know I am ALWAYS up for a worthy trade, par for the course for me.)
So Orangekathy was working on some zauberball crazy socks. I knit with this yarn once and decided I wasn’t going to do it again, even though I loved the look of the socks. I warned orangekathy, but the colors called to her (in particular the color orange, who knew?). So she went for it, and became so frustrated she could barely look at the socks by the time she was done.
Know what? I can look at them. I can wear them. And I can give them all the love and care they deserve!
