So my 12 pairs of socks plan has gotten off to a bit of a rocky start. Yesterday I went to wind the yarn for my first pair of socks, the Wishbone socks (because my counting was also suffering when I figured out that no. 4 on my list was Wishbone, not Nutkin…). I went to go wind the yarn and twenty seconds in, it looked something like this.
Seriously, one of the most poorly wound skeins I’ve ever encountered. (and whoa, my craft room is a mess.)
My plan now is to see if one of my knitting circle friends would like to take a stab at untangling that beast and winding it by hand—some of them really enjoy that sort of thing. My contingency plan is to re-run the number generator and just pick a different pair of socks for January, and then either go back to the Wishbone socks once a friend has had a chance to wind the yarn, or with a new skein of yarn.
Fiddlesticks. How are your 2011 knitting projects going, three days in?
