About the socks: I agree with you Jeanne, I seem to recall a few washes not really helping the other "solo" sock I have in this yarn or else I would have a pair and I know I don't. I have some really nice stuff in my closet and I just bought more, there's no reason to twitter over making another scratchy sock! I'll use the rest of the yarn for cat toys or something (anybody want it?). I think I still have a couple more skeins of this stuff that I should put up on Rav to trade or sell. There's an Opal Group there that has over 450 members so somebody should want it!!! I can't understand their luv, but we all have our own opinions on things and I respect their choice to appreciate it in a way I can't.
I've been trying to start a beret for my sister in law but keep doing other things instead. I guess it's because it calls for a "tubular cast-on" and I don't really want to do it (cause I don't know how). Lately I've had the "fuzzy mind" issue going on, it's too much to think about no matter how easy it is. I guess I should at least watch the video again...maybe it'll just "click" all of a sudden.
