Even when you think you know better, you don't.

Yesterday I acquired some lovely Eidos sock yarn at the Sock Summit which was marked "Charmides" though from looking at their website I think it looks more like 'Calliope'. I frustratingly wound it into a ball (my ball winder doesn't handle sock weight well and my swift is jenky) then cast on for Circle Socks which has been sitting in my queue for a really long time.

I thought I knew better than the designer so I'm frogging and starting again for the third time.

I'm upset at my own stupidity and bull headedness (yes, I realize that is not a word) and will accept condolences in the form of this, these, or this charming fellow.

It really is beautiful yarn so starting over is preferrable to tossing it into a forgotten corner.

I really, really want to amp up my knitting skills. I'm determined! I <3 the ball winder - I want one! Where's your favorite place to buy supplies and yarn from?

I don't have one favorite place. Locally I like Purl District a lot. As for online there are so many choices! It depends on what I'm getting. I usually search around a bit for the best price.
