You have to many projects on the needles, and you want to cast on more?
Type A: The reasonable knitter. Will patiently and wisely finish the UFOs.
Type B: The impulsive knitter. Will cast on the new project despite the already existing UFOs.
I'm usually the Type A knitter as I don't like having more than one project at the same time. Two is a maximum, because I usually already begin to feel the Guilt. More than one is only for emergencies like Christmas, Birthdays, unexpected last-minute gifts or crochet (crochet is not knitting so it doesn't count).
This time it was different. I had this yarn for a while. I had already tried to knit it twice without any satisfying result. I thought, maybe, this time would be different. The pattern was lovely and very well written, I had the right needles (Addi 2.25mm), I was in the perfect mood to knit my May Socks... but, but, but, I hate this yarn! It's rough, splitty, thin and has a suspect acrylic sheen (confirmed by the label: 7%). After several days without touching it, the wiser decision was to frog. It's a shame because I had almost finished the gusset decreases on both sock, but I wouldn't have loved them anyway, and I'm too nice to offer these socks to someone I like (remember: acrylic = yuk!)
The sadistic satisfaction I feeled while frogging proved me I was right!
Now I have those lovely socks on the needles. They are humble and simple, but exactly what I needed to forgive this horrible blue yarn!
What type of Knitter are YOU? A, B, C or any other kind?
Wish you a lovely week end!
