Have you actually seen it?
You know that something fishy is going on but you cannot put your finger on it...
You pick up a pattern. You do the ground work carefully.
You pick up the yarn, match the needles, knit the gauge swatch. Everything spot on.
You have read the pattern through carefully before casting on (well, forget the carefully and ... through the pattern, but you have some kind of idea just where you are going).
You cast on and from the very beginning you know something is not working.
You rip, try another cast on but still there is something odd.
You ignore the warning and plow on. You pause, you look at your knitting, you continue and then pause again.
There is something strange with everything. No matter what the yarn is not working.
It is like it has its own mind.
And it does. I saw it.
The mischievous two-ply.
I managed to take its picture and through magnifying glass this is what it looks like. I am sure it is not pleased, but here it is...
Now, every time I pick up a yarn, this is what I think. Kind of scary.
Wool with you,
