There isn't much worse then knitting up a yarn you don't like. You have to use it, because someone gave it to you. You have to pretend to enjoy that knitting within earshot of said someone. Even though it's acrylic and you really do prefer wool, you have to knit that yarn.
Of course, it could be worse if you finished knitting said yarn into a hat, and realized that the bind-off that you used was tight enough that it now sits on your head like a neon pink mushroom cap.
Rip it, rip it, rip it.
I get by with a little help from my friends.
I can't wait to receive my KnitPicks order. I have to knit another striped scarf, another bramble hat, and 2 more sets of kilt hose. Of course, I'm receiving yarn for myself as well, but that project will have to wait till these are done.
