Seeing Red

I'm not going to lie.
I feel a little bad for this yarn.

This poor yarn has been knit,
and frogged,
and knit,
and frogged
and now it is being knit again.

The first few yards certainly are a little shopworn
from the indignity of being ripped back so many times.

It will be okay though.
The scruffity bits will be hidden under my pants leg.

I promised this yarn that there will be no more major frogs.

I hope I can keep my promise.


  1. They will be pretty socks and no one will notice scruffy bits under your pant legs. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead!

  2. I love the colour, fingers crossed for the yarn becoming a pair of socks :-)

  3. Such a rich and lovely color.

  4. What a fantastic red. Happy red socks. They will be perfect in no time

  5. Poor yarn!
    I looked up the pattern in Ravelry and it looks a bit tricky with the beginning of the round changing. Looks like you just have keep track of those trusty stitch markers

  6. The pattern name seems appropriate for this yarn, so I hope it behaves itself. Happy knitting!

  7. Red yarn is perfect for that pattern. Hope the yarn behaves!!

  8. that yarn is holding up brilliantly for it's repeated frogging. Love that red and I hope this is the pattern that makes it happy!!

  9. I love red socks-and could Dragon Breath be more perfect?

  10. Poor yarn, this pattern will finally be its thing!

  11. I love a good red and this is a perfect pattern for the yarn! Have fun!

  12. Do you watch "Game of Thrones"? I think Daenerys, Mother of Dragons, would want these socks ... :-)
