Notice anything? I said I only had 10 rows to go, right? Well, there isn't enough thread left to do ONE row. Holy moly! I sent out an emergency call to LittleKnits to get some more. I even sent her a picture so she could see what I was talking about. She said, "I don't know what yarn that is, but we have nothing like it here". WHAT?! OH NO!
So I sent the socks to the frog pond to meditate, ferment and rot. I'm going to let them sit and think about how they made me lose my mojo. And when I'm not angry anymore, I'll THINK about what I'm going to do with them.
Meanwhile, I hope the OnLine folks will drop me a line to let me know where I can purchase more of this discontinued superwash merino sock yarn.
Now, I'm going to have some good thoughts about the Sheep and Wool Festival in October and I'm going to do a little spinning. And Sojourn, I'm going to need some donkeys to carry my roving home because I plan to buy 200 pounds of everything I like - you know ... to soothe my nerves about the socks.
Right now, this is what I'm working with, a lovely merino wool called Summer Camp, purchased from etsy and my favorite supplier, Muzzlepuffs. I sure hope she forgives me for featuring her wool, I certainly don't do it justice.
And if that doesn't do the trick, maybe I'll go to Ravelry to figure out how to get all my dream patterns onto my queue.
