you know when it all goes wrong at the same time? Check this out. It's not serious, I know, but bloody irritating though...
First, I dyed the yarn.
I soooo wish I hadn't put the red in. When I wound it into a cake, it looks horrible. I call it Yukilicious. Sweet but awful.
Then, having joined the Mystery Stole 4 group on Yahoo and Ravelry, I decided, after spending a small fortune on green beads, to go for purple and dye my own yarn up for it. I spent ages winding balls back into hanks and then dissolved the grape Kool Aid crystals into the water. I added the 4 skeins I had wound one at a time. Well, by the time I added the last one (and I wasn't that slow) the dye had all gone, so I have 2 purple, one lilac and one a bit white and blotchy.
BUGGER!!!!! In the end, I thought, fuck it, and have ordered some laceweight on line, with a begging note to the vendor to send soon. Bloody hell!!!
Then, I am knitting the Waving Lace sock and look at this...
The pattern said 50g, which is what I started with, and I'm not even round on to the bottom of the foot yet! Help!! I was considering knitting the rest of this in another colour, but I think it'll look silly, so I am considering unravelling quickly. :(
