If you could see my inner-self now, there would be a teenage girl in a raggedy maybe at one time it was black cardigan on, flopping around on her bed upside down with her semi greasy but all natural dark colored hair collecting dust on a shag carpet, whining, whinging, sighing, and flopping her arms.
The Dental Anxiety Ankle socks are ... no more.
I frogged them because despite the fact there probably was someone, somewhere that would enjoy them, I simply would not enjoy continuing to knit them, and really friends .. why the heck should we be bothered with that?
Knit with joy, I tell ya'.
And thus my Non pareils were born. I bought this yarn impulsively when going in for something else, something practical, like buttons, replacement dpns or gift yarn. Anyhow, it was layed out on a table with different swatches of the various colorways knit together.
It is so soft.
KFI Luxury Collection. Indulgence Cashmere.
But because I can't just leave things well enough alone, instead of doing my standard sock pattern, but wanting to do stockinette, I am trying US1 needle. I know, from US 3 to US 1. It's the exterme reaction of the above moody teenager.
Also my US2s are otherwise engaged with my Pumpkin socks or can be used for kindling since I keep snapping them.
The colors make me happy. Chocolate candy happy.
I was tappy, typing my new "sweet" project into Ravelry when I noticed, this is not sock yarn.(please, don't tell me this should be obvious, because if it's anything you should know about me and knitting, nothing, absolutely nothing is obvious to me, until I'm in so far, I practically need a legal team and military specialist team to extract me from my situation)
It's dk weight yarn.
Okay, so it's not the end of the world. Plenty of people knit socks with dk weight yarn. Theyll be comfy, cozy, house, camping what the heck ever rustic socks.
I actually think size wise it might work. It's early days, they seem very stretchy, but the US 1s are a lot of work. I do find some joy in them. Will I continue to?
Do I stay the course? Do I rip that out?
The thing is, I really like this yarn for socks. I even knit on them at lunch. I don't want a shawl, a cowl or mitts. I want socks out of this damn dk impulse bought yarn.
Tonight I return to the pumpkins. I need a little less drama in my sock knitting for a hot minute.
Let me know if you have an opinion, but don't be surprised if I frog these too.
