to be fair,
wendy didn’t really
taunt me with sock yarn.
i might even
have asked her
if she had any of this
after seeing suzanne‘s
project pics on ravelry.
in all honesty that my own short attention span is to blame
and not wendy’s generosity in being willing to part with
this amazing sock yarn.
…um, now that i’ve told ‘the rest of the story’,
will some kind knitter please come over and frog the skew sock that i already started?
i’m sure i don’t want to finish it,
but not so sure i can rip all those many rows of tiny, precise stitches out.
where is super grover when you really do need him anyways?

apparently contrast is my achilles heel. remember this?
i do love shibui sock yarn.
it’s soft and i have a
well known weak spot
for semi solid colorways.
still, it doesn’t give my skew socks
that i envisioned.
my fingers keep knitting, but all the while my head is saying,
“why are you doing all this work to knit on the bias
when the greens transition so smoothly that the angles hardly show at all?”
then my so called ‘friend’ wendy
offered up this ‘opal hunderwasser‘
(but would a true friend
boldly colored sock yarn
in front of a friend
who was halfway thru her first sock of a pair
in a much more subdued,
or dare i say
even boring by comparison, colorway?)
i am not so sure…
