It's beautiful. You're just making up the frogging story to make us all feel better.

You always do such neat work. Great job. It kills me how fast you crank out this stuff - frogging or no.

Yeah, I know all about this method of "double knitting", use it all the time. Very nice outcome for you, which is always a good thing. You are looking so svelte.

Beautiful sweater and it looks good on you.

Although, I would have cried, thrown the work down, and had a full blown temper tantrum on the floor.

Having worked and agonized with "hand paint yarns" previously, I kinda knew I was in for it! No surprises there! Kinda like, any woman who marries Charlie Sheen knows she's in for some temper tantrums and anger issues!

I knew what I was buying into. But let me tell ya...at our recent Pacific Northwest version of Stitches (The Madrona) I didn't even look sideways, not even a glance, at all the dozens and dozens of yarn booths selling "hand paints"! Hand paints are only good for small projects....socks, hats, gloves, scarves. One or maybe two skeins. Even with two skeins you'll have to alternate the skeins to get an even distribution of color! Hand paints can be an impossible nightmare for garment knitting! I think I have this pounded into my thick head now!
