Oh Stupid Pooling Yarn...

WHY do you torment me so?? I got this gorgeous yarn, wound it into a ball and excitedly started knitting. Isn't it fantastic? Not really. Here is why:

Both socks

and

front jaywalker pattern

Doesn't it look STUPID??

Look at the wonderful heel and toe though. This is exactly what I wanted it to look like and imagined it would look like knit up.

ARGH. I seriously and so annoyed. This is the second stupid sock I have tried with it and it is STILL lame. I think I might just throw the stupid thing in the garbage.

I kind of like the way it pools, I find it interesting. Most people try to avoid this effect, and I understand if you don't like it. Me, I don't mind.

Otherwise, the socks are looking great!

That looks like Lorna's Rainbow. Don't throw it away!! Mine pooled too, but I didn't mind it so much.
