The day started innocently enough. I had decided to frog a long languishing pair of socks that were to small. So I did that and I rounded up all the yarns that I had frogged in the past. I decided I was going to split them all into two balls and wind them for use in the future to keep them neat and tidy. I’ve also decided to go back to two socks at a time when I can so thats why I split them all. Here is a picture of the goings ons
You see that red skein of yarn? Its the Cookie A February sock club shipment. It looks so innocent there doesn’t it….. It was going to become a pair of My Vampire Boyfriend socks..notice the use of the word was. So things were going swimmingly. I was remembering names of really old yarns and brands etc. I got all the yarn wound and separated with no problems. I get to the Alisha Goes Around from February and all hell broke loose.
Tangled beyond redemption. I dont have the patience or the time to work on it. I’m not one of those good un tanglers. I’m going to have my husband look at it when he gets home but most likely it will get chucked. Such a shame it was a pretty yarn. Normally I would cry or be in a bad mood for the rest of the day but I kept my cool and let it go. There are worse things that can happen in life.
I did finish some sewing though. I made this pillow for my mom. I purchased a class at craftsy.com and I learned how to make french seams while doing this it’s a pretty nifty way of having no raw edges.
It has one of those backs where you can slip in a new pillow if neccesary.
Other than the tangled yarn things are going well. I only have one pair of socks on the needles, and one shawl, and one hibernating cardigan. My chiaogoo needles will arrive today and my knitting and yarn are orderly. I dont feel overwhelmed by wip’s or my sock yarn anymore. So thats a good day if you ask me.
