Hi Knitting friends,
I am enjoying reading the different interpretations of U G L Y theme from the Love Your Blog challenge. Knit + Grits shares a fabulous twist about U G L Y. regarding knit related issues. I thought I would respond with my top 2 personal U G L Y knit related issues:
1. YARN BARFS: Yes this is a thing. On one occasion, I returned some defective yarn. At the LYS, the salesperson gave me the replacement skein and turned me loose with the yarn winder. 1.5 hours later, the yarn barf was unraveled and it took me another year to trust myself alone with a ball winder.
2. GAUGE: Five years into knitting and I have finally started to understand the meaning behind gauge. Hope this isn’t shocking to others. Does this mean that I wasn’t doing it (knitting) right? I guess it means that I have spent the last few years making accessories and other projects where gauge wasn’t an important factor. I am working on my second pair of socks and I have discovered that beer & knitting is a good combination.
