Thirty

My red socks now live in Y's home. You see, the thing I learnt is that stst is all well and good for colourful yarn, but when it comes to one long solid colour, no matter how wonderful, I loose focus. I knit them too small, and I knew it, I just didn't want to frog. I knit them too narrow, and I knew it, I just didn't want to frog. What's more, I knit them different lengths, and, ofcourse, I knew it, I just wanted to be finished.

But now they have a good home and I know that when I'm not happy with the knitting, put it down gently and walk away - don't plough my way through a project I'm not enjoying just to get it off the needles.
