Last year I decided that knitting socks was entirely too tedious, time consuming, hard and boring, and I wasn’t going to make any more. Nope. No more.
Then I got one of those skeins of yarn that looked really pretty in the skein, but I hated the way it looked knitted up. The only project I could think of to suit ugly fingering weight yarn was socks, since no one really ever sees them.
I’m about halfway done with the cuffs. And they were tedious. And time consuming. And hard. And boooring. I’m definitely not making any more. Nope. No more.
Also, when I pulled out a pair that I made last year, one of the socks had two holes in the top of the foot, where socks don’t usually get holes. Not sure what happened there.
Shortly thereafter I discovered that darning socks is almost as bad as making them in the first place, and has much less satisfying results.
I used exactly the same yarn the sock was made of to mend it, but somehow it’s a different color and the mended area is uncomfortably hard, thick and bumpy. Yay. I suppose it must have been bad yarn or something. Or maybe I’m just not good at making/mending socks.
Either way, darning is another thing I plan on not doing again. Nope. Not again. Not until next time, anyway.
