I Have Jinxed Yarn
I am not one that believes in superstitions or things being jinxed. I am really starting to believe that this yarn is jinxed. Everything I have tried to knit with it just isn't working. The socks looked okay but I kept having ladders and odd shaped stitches and when I got to the foot I didn't feel that they were going to be "good" socks. So I ripped them out yesterday.
So today, I started a Multnomah shawl, but I am not liking how it is turning out. My stitches are all wonky and uneven so it is kind of bothering me. I am pondering ripping this out and trying to find something else to knit with this yarn. The yarn may just need to go in "timeout" for a very long time.
