Just got this yarn in the mail. It was from Eat Sleep Knit, and it's Cephalopod Yarn's Skinny Bugga in the 'Splendour Beetle' colorway. I'm looking forward to knitting up a colorful pair of socks with it ~
I had a knitting catastrophe a couple of weeks ago. I'd put in about 20 hours of work on a pink fingering weight wedding shawl from The Purl Bee. It was coming along nicely, until the yarn started breaking every couple of rows. When I investigated the ball, I saw a hole running straight through it. I threw that ball away, but after inspecting the shawl itself, I saw several threadbare stitches in it, and one of them fell apart just as I was staring at it. I couldn't imagine a way to fix it, so I threw the entire thing away. Very heartbreaking. It was either really crappy yarn, or I had accidentally weakened/stabbed it with my sharp little scissors while carrying it around in my bag to work, OR I had my first moth experience. I never got to the bottom of it, but anyway, grumble grumble. C'est La Vie.
