We left our Intrepid Fiberwizard in the midst of a dilemma a few days ago... the gorgeous Fleece Artist yarn was damaged (and upon closer inspection, it had been caught in some sort of machine~ the telltale signs of grease in that spot gave away the source of the problemo)
Waiting for the right moment of calm, the wizard courageously cut the precious yarn....
would she have to reknit the whole sock?
could she repair the yarn, allowing her to continue?
would the newly formed join hold across the instep of the foot?
Ta Dah !
behold - a rescued sock!!
I'm doin' a little happy dance right about now :-) If you look very very closely in the center of this first photo, you will see two teensey stray ends that need to be snipped.... but it will hold (yes, blogging buddies... I tried it on to make sure *grin*)
So, my Toasty Toes secret pal can breathe easy - her sock won't fall apart (this is good) and I can knit on!!!
Okay - wanna see one more sneak preview? We're celebrating in wizard-land so here you go!
thanks for all the encouragement - the sock has now left time out - and I return to the joy of knitting... It's a good day.
