There were two other holes and I’ve repaired them three times already. I purchased the “sock” yarn as part of a sock club. Loved the colorway and it might have been nice as a different project, but the yarn was a sock fail.
Or as we say around here “that sure is a pretty truck”.*
Oh, and I didn’t wear them that much after the first repair, because it was random stitches breaking.
I have yarn! I have mitten patterns. I have the urge to knit mittens. Nothing is saying “knit me”. Nothing. I have no combinations that are begging to jump on the needles. It might be easier if I:
- had less yarn
- had it all logged on Ravelry
- had a local yarn shop
After all that random blathering, I went and pulled the two colors you see above out of my stash. Now to decide which one is going to be mitts. What do you think?
Happy Sunday y’all!
p.s. Anyone else remember when there used to be a Sunday Sock?
* Texas’ stepfather bought a really pretty and really expensive truck. However, it has a light rear end, but you can’t put too much weight in it, it has spider gears, it’s a 6 cylinder with awful transmission gears, he puts the cheapest things on it when they go bad (tires, breaks, even recycled a pair of windshield wipers once) and heaven forbid you “scratch the bed”. It’s a pretty truck that you really can’t use for crap.
