Saved from the big frog.
My beautiful new socks were knitting up a treat until i realised i wasn't yet at the heel and was nearing the middle of the ball. Panic set in. Would i have to frog them and alter sections for sizing. Or knit a completely different pattern.
I don't mind frogging because it's not working, or to resolve an error - but when it is working and I am loving it that is fate I was not able to bare.
Of course i had to pick the skein of wool from Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock that
- Was the lone one of it's colourway and weight in my stash
- where I had recieved notice via the sock club that they would be resting the colourway
- where I had also recieved subsequent notice that it was low in stock.
- and I had also recieved a notice that there was an ordering frenzy following the resting announcement.
I threw myself on the mercy of the ladies of Blue Moon Fiber Arts and hoped they had a lone skein in search of a home.
My luck held out and it is on it is winging its way to me as I type.
The customer service ethic of these ladies is second to none.
Whilst waiting I have cast on an easy sock for dh in a ball of Opal Neon (that I have 3 others of) with the intention of knitting a pair of socks in this colourway for each of the household. Dh, his mother, O & I. I am looking forward to completing this little mini-project.
