Another grey and drizzly day here, but it is 60 F, so that's a plus for sure.
The rhubarb yarn...so lovely...soft, squishy, beautiful colors...knits up into awful socks! The pooling is just plain ugly (or as my friend Leslie would say, fugly).
What's a girl to do? Why rip it out of course. And (at 5:30 this morning) cake up another skein of yarn:
Pretty and spring-like right? This is "Estuary" by Black Bunny Fibers that I won some time back from Bridget which is equally soft and squishy and oh so nice.
So, in my bag today, I have the misbehaving rhubarb yarn, the estuary yarn and the two cakes of Miss Babs that misbehaved for Mick Jagged. I have my #1 needles for socks and I have my #6 40" circular for a shawl. I'm thinking now that the estuary might pair very nicely with the dark orion from Miss Babs for a shawl (some kind of "take" on Mick Jagged -- not as much purling which I really do not like, and longer stretches before changing colors) and the daydream believer might make nice socks. And the rhubarb? Not sure what that will be.
I wonder what I will do at lunch today....
