Son of A Gum Drop!


What in Frickin Frackness is this!!!!!!


That, my dear readers is a flipping KNOT in my brand new ball of Trekking Pro Natura yarn.  Didn’t we just have this talk?  Boy, these knots are really working my nerve.  I’m just saying – 18.50 for a ball of sock yarn – you think I could have that served up without the knots?  And if you find a website, or any kind of address for this company – pass it to me, because I have some words I would like to speak at them. 

Deep Breath. 

 And Acting like I didn’t just have a sock-yarn-tantrum….

Here are the Friend of a Friend Sock, just waiting for me to make a label and hand them over.  I’m happy with them and I hope the intended wearer finds comfort and warmth in them. 


I have to say how much I’ve appreciated reading all your comments on the Knitting Group question – all of you had such great ideas and insight and allowed me to view more than just my side of things.  I didn’t bring up the subject of kids at the time – but that is a valid comment also, and although I love kids, and have kids, I agree that perhaps groups like this aren’t the best place for them.  But that is totally up to who organizes your particular group – if there is a no kids statement from the get go – then I would say it should be respected.  Some groups allow older children who knit – and I’m all for that.  But the babies and the running around kids thing – I can see where you all might not be enjoying that little gift.  Your suggestions have really given me the feedback I was looking for, because honestly – I was at a loss.  I usually can be pretty blunt and outspoken and don’t have a problem standing up for myself.  But sometimes – I just get caught off guard and don’t know how to handle something while it’s happening.  Now I can certainly rely on your suggestions to guide me if it should come up again. 

Ok, now to decide if I should keep on knitting with that stupid sock yarn or do the right thing and cast on for the second wallably sleeve.

  1. Boy, what knitting god have you ticked off? LOL You’re definitely on a run with the knots!

    The Friend of a Friend socks look beautiful. I’m sure the recipient is going to love them. 🙂

    Probably a sign to just cast on for the second wallaby sleeve. Probably better for your blood pressure, too. LOL

  2. A knot in Pro Natura? Ye Gads!

    Love the pink socks. They’re really pretty and I’m surprised I like them so much since I’m not a fan of pink.

    Glad I could help with the sticky situation. I think we all find ourselves in situations where we let the tide takes us. It’s good to be prepared for the next time. 🙂

  3. I hate knots! I seem to get them in most of my yarn. The only line that doesn’t have the dang knots is Cascade. I love the friend of a friend socks. I’m sure the intended wearer will love them.
