Frog Pond

This is so depressing. I was almost done with one sock pal sock when I realized the following facts:
1. I'd dropped part of a cable near the cuff.
2. In the Amethyst Stripe yarn, the cables are pretty much invisible.

So I frogged. The socks are 'due' soon, but I just couldn't see myself sending out something I wouldn't be happy to receive in the mail. Tonight, I'll rest, tomorrow, I'll swatch in the other purple to evaluate how things will look, then make up my mind. Ugh!

Ugh. I feel your pain. But I'm sure your swap pal will appreciate that you cared enough to start over rather than fake it! (((hugs)))

Sorry to hear about your sock. I would have done the same thing, painful as I'm sure it was. Have a good rest day!

Ohhh, poor you - I so know what you're going through! But sometimes it's just best frogging a project and starting anew - things will go way more smoothly this time!

What a pain. Hopefully it will work out with the next one.

Never mind, I'd have done the same thing!

Do you know what the latin means on my latest blog post? It was carved into an archway in Amsterdam. I must upload the photo.

Of course, the writer is completely fair.
