The Unyarner


In the life of those of us who spend a lot of time with yarn, there are the ribbit days. You know when you have to rip and rip what you’ve worked so hard to make. They call it frogging. I’ve just lived through a couple of these days that look like this:

(Pixabay)

First, my fine-gauge sock loom broke. When it was just one peg I managed to put the extra loop onto another nearby peg and work it. It was a pain but doable. Then the one next to the broken one broke. There was no way, that I could figure to work the extra loop. I thought I could capture all the little loops on a circular knitting needle but… you know how an idea doesn’t work in your head and just can’t be done.

I had another sock loom in the process, too. But I wasn’t happy with the yarn or the colors. Both socks had the ribbing, leg, and heel done. That’s the hardest part. But I just wasn’t happy with that one and the broken one was useless. There was nothing left to do. Rip it out! And twice my lap looked like the picture above.

It took two days to figure out how I was going to deal with my goal of making a couple pairs of socks. My hero, my husband, bought me some Gorilla Super Glue. My hero, my brother, glued in the pegs. I honestly don’t hold a lot of hope for that loom but it was worth the try. Besides that particular loom is only about $15. If I decide to go that way.

Meanwhile, I found another loom and started another sock. I hope this one lives. I’ll share it when it’s finished. Oh, what the heck. Here’s the life of a yarner!

Hard to believe that this will be a sock looks like a sick tambourine!
