What a difference a day makes…

They where fine when I put them on yesterday morning. But this morning:

The yarn just disintegrated!

Must have been pure merino, without nylon. It was also dyed with plants and it faded considerably from when knitted:
 I was ok with that, I loved the colour and watching it change.

post 2 finished

I will cut away the foot and knit a new heel and foot with other yarn. I’ve got a new travel WIP now. Yet another one. Let’s hope my self worth as a knitter keeps remaining unfazed by the number of WIPs and hibernating projects that live around my house. Ah, optimism is a wonderful mask for denial to wear:

  1. Oh nee…. wat erg!! Dat is dat garen van mij hè. Dat was geen merino. Maar wel puur wol… geen sokkenwol. Hè wat vind ik dat erg voor je 😦 ik heb groene sokkenwol in mn stash… kan ik dat naar je opsturen dan kun je eventueel een nieuwe voet breien 😦 nogmaals sorry!!

    • ben je mal! ik wist niet dat het 100% wol was. Nu wel 😉 Ik vind de kleur prachtig en heb al jaren plezier van deze wol en van bedenken wat ik ermee zou maken 🙂 Hij heeft heel goed z’n doel gediend. xxx
