To the frog pond....and something new

I decided to frog this sock.....

Now you see it.

Now you don't.

I hate this yarn. It looks so great all wound up, but I just don't like it when I'm knitting it. On the sale pile, it goes!

The yarn that called out to me to be knit next was my latest shipment from Blue Moon Fiber Arts , Walking on the Wild Tide.

But I'm not using the pattern that came with it. I've heard too many tales about the sock for me to waste my precious knitting time. I've chosen the Pomatomas socks by Cookie A. I just LOVE her patterns!

Progress so far is small (just the cuff) since I spent time finishing up some obligations last night, but now I have time to knit away! Pictures coming as soon as I have more than the cuff completed.

Life is too short to knit with yarn you hate. Good for you for frogging!

I've heard bad things about that Grasshopper pattern also. The yarn sounds and looks yummy but will do better with a pattern you love.

Can't wait to see the Pomotamus. I too don't really want to knit the WotWT yarn in the pattern provided so will be interested in seeing what yours look like.
