That stinks. I would definately wind it back up and list it - you can then buy some other yummy yarn

Re: You know my WOOL don't lie and I'm starting to feel it's right -- SUNDAY

Anybody mind if I just jump in?

Molly, I think you'll be able to resell frogged yarn. Maybe take a little off the price since it's been knit through the body already? What colorway is RK?

Here's a LS question - I just finished the gusset and started the first leg on my first pair last night. I'm not totally happy with the gusset, but they're for the new baby so I'm not worried about total perfection like I would be if they were for someone else. Is anybody who knits LS woolies happy with their gusset? My stitch pattern gets messed up...I just did KFB for the increases, so maybe if I tried to do mirrored increases it would work out better?

(Am I allowed to ask for non-pattern-specific advice on this thread?)

Thank you! It's "Sweet" from Selah. I've had it stashed for months and I opened up the drawer last night and it called to me

After all this, I don't even want the yarn anymore. I don't like it that much... I wish she'd do the darker RK again.

But if I FROG it... then what do I do with the yarn? It's Naiad and I realized recently that I hate Naiad. It's just too thin.

But can I sell frogged yarn?


I don't know what to do. I feel sad about messing this up so badly.
Sorry to hear that! It's such a pretty color. Maybe it's different IRL. I'd hank it back up & wash it. That way all the kinks will come out & the yarn is ready to be worked again when/if you sell it. You can always take off $2-3-4 and let the purchaser know that you've knit it, and then frogged and washed.

It IS thin, but I love working with it. It's so soft. Is it thicker with the LS? I was thinking of doing some of mine in LS.

I would frog and wind it and sell it. Even if you take a few bucks off it to sell it will be worth it.

Hi Megan! Welcome!

Of course you can ask for advice. We're all woolly lovers here! Not just knitters! I haven't gotten to a gusset yet on LS. LOL!

Re: You know my WOOL don't lie and I'm starting to feel it's right -- SUNDAY

Good morning girls! Yay for sleeping babies! So sorry about the frogging and yarn issues...

I just ripped out the entire Knox Hood. It turned out too small. That's what I get for trying to convert the pattern for a bulky when it didn't give much in the line of measurements. Oh well, I'll do an earflap hat or something.

Thanks Shaine! I tried to do a variegated with it and it didn't work out at all. And the dark part on the leg is just a shadow.

I think I will wash and sell it. I am so bummed about this. I wanted that colorway so badly.

All stitches are smalling in LS... so the Naiad knits up pretty tightly even on 10's

I much prefer Gaia. So soft... but bulky. I love me some bulky and like the look of it better too.
