Good news: I selected another sock pattern for the Fair and I love it. Love, love, love it.
Bad news: I now have 7 days to finish knitting them, washing and blocking them.
Good news: I had the perfect skein of yarn for these socks.
Bad news: It’s the same yarn base that I am using for about 300 current contract knitting pieces. It’s wonderful, but all yarn has its pros and cons, and the cons for this yarn is a tendency toward splitting.
Good news: The yarn is perfect for stitch definition.
Bad news: The yarn is perfect for showing every error, including splitting.
Good news: I have one sock of the pair finished.
Bad news: Last night I had to frog the entire second sock (2-3″) because of a dumb error that was not fudgable, especially considering the yarn’s perfection in showing every error.
