You know how it is, you have this ball of beautiful yarn in your stash, you have stroked it, held it up to the light, imagined what you could make from it.
I spent forever on Ravelry going through sock patterns and could not find anything that I liked, undeterred, I started to make up my own. A simple but effective textured diamond pattern, with an eye of partridge heel and a double rib to hold it tight and keep the sock up... it had everything going for it, it really did.
So now I have a dilemma, do I finish it... and then force myself to knit its mate because frankly it is too horrid to even contemplate a giveaway. Or do I rip it back, ball it up and leave it in my stash as a scary reminder of how bad my taste can be... and the scary thing is I have another ball in other colours, I wonder if this will be the same when knitted?
I think I may have to remove it from the needles, just in case they get tainted by the yarn... I think it is a wise precaution until I decide what to do...
Whatever was I thinking... Sighs deeply :(
