A Love/Hate Relationship


When Flipflopping Mama and I went shopping a few months ago, I picked up a few skeins of knitter's crack (*cough cough* Colinette Jitterbug Sock Yarn).
This stuff is the most scrumptious, squishy yarn out there.
The colors are so vibrant and exhuberant and make me forget how dreary it looks outside. (My mantra, "Just watch my feet, just watch my feet, ignore the gray skies, don't look up until May".

If I could just remember that I hate short row heels. I hate the way they fit. I hate the way the look. I hate knitting them.

The good thing about short row heels is that I'd be ashamed to give away a pair of socks with short row heels. Shamed. Humiliated.

So I'll just have to wear them myself.

I'm very self-sacrificing that way.

I LOVE that yarn...it matches my new glasses too!! You should give them to me. I promise I won't tell ANYONE how awful the heels look ;o)

Hey Rachel!
Cute socks!
I haven't worked on much crochet this winter at all. Glad to see you're carrying on for all of us with the fiber arts!
