I'm so disappointed!
I was very excited when I received Kureyon sock yarn in a swap on Ravelry. I started casting it on today and to my great surprise it snapped in my hands when I was trying to join it together. Perhaps I pull too hard when knitting socks, but this is just ridiculous. I thought that maybe I just hit a weak spot, but when I tried pulling on other sections of the yarn, it broke, with very little tension. Sigh. I was looking forward to working with this. I guess I'll just have to find a different project for it, or ease up on my tension.

Maybe you should cut back on the Wheaties.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

That's happened to me before, too. Drives me nuts.

Funny, Mason!
