The juxtaposition of traditional, Scandinavian-inspired fair isle with the sensibility of a kneesock--and--the most synthetic, retina-burningly flourescent yarn Wal-Mart has to offer?























You already know what I think about that. I think hell yes.


Nothing like a good heavy dose of knitter's irony to kick off a bout with Faulkner under my AP English teacher's unsympathetic negligence.

This sock, this darling sock, has served as a fine breather from this mess:























Why, oh why, am I simply incapable of picking a cable panel and sticking to it? That's twice, now, that I've changed my mind about the pattern 10% of the way through this design and ripped. I still don't understand the concept of commitment. Even worse, I have had more combatting opinions about bobbles in the past week than I even knew existed.

I'm considering just scrapping the whole idea of winging it and submitting to a basic braid or something. You know, something that has already been thought (and charted) out before me.

That picture made me laugh! Oh, if only we didn't have to wear uniforms at my school. The revenge I would exact on my teachers and peers....
