Sometimes things just aren’t meant to be. Unfortunately for me, it looks like some yarn I really love isn’t meant to be a pair of socks.
You may remember that back in September, I tried to work on a pair of socks while I was away for a short holiday in Las Vegas. They didn’t work out too well…
Yuck! They didn’t stripe at all like they were supposed to!
So, I ripped them out, and started from the toe up, using no particular pattern. Things went pretty well…
…until I got to the heel. I’ve tried four different times to come up with a nice heel for these socks. But I gave up after my last attempt when I ended up with this:
Who’s heel is shaped like that?!
So, I ripped the sock out. The yarn has returned to my stash, to sit for goodness knows how long and think about what it did wrong.
