After working on a few W.I.P.s I got to the point where I needed something a little more mindless (Fibro-fog ftw?) as most of the ones left are ones that require paying close attention. So what did I do?
Why, I cast on another pair of socks, of course. This didn’t end up being as straightforward a process as I would have liked. The yarn I used was one that was gifted to me a long time ago. I liked the colors and all (though I have zero idea what kind of yarn this is as there was no label), but as you can see…
Myeah, needless to say that this kind of took away from what was meant as a kind gesture (the patch of yarn that was cut was taped over… taped!).
After many Russian joins, I finally got started.
So yeah, word to the wise: if you’re going to gift someone yarn from your stash, please make sure that it’s not obviously (and really *points up*, this was very obvious) cut or damaged. Your well-meaning gesture won’t quite come across that way otherwise.
