The knitting goddess must be on a rampage this week! So sorry to hear she got to you too!
My sister had requested "something brown or blue" in the way of socks. That very week SockPixie had cashmere/merino in a brown and blue. Jackpot! I was working from foot measurements my sister gave me and about to the toe when she finally made it up to visit. I had her try on the sock as is and she couldn't get the cuff over her toes! I had a few "words" with the knitting goddess. As I was frogging the sock, the yarn ripped apart in TWO places and now its a tangled mess of $30 yarn.
Guess I POed the knitting goddess.
Hmm... perhaps a little retail therapy to recover from the trauma....
