Turning my back on Sin

So yes I have been bitten by the lace bug. While Holden is still blocking I decided to cast on for another shawl. On my list to do in the next while are Milkweed, Travelling Woman Shawl & Centrique. After a chat with some of the Twitter knitterati, I decided Carol Feller’s beautiful Centrique should be next. I’m taking part in a June Clapotis knit-a-long so thought I’d sneak Centrique in first.

Next decision was what yarn to use. I had a few different colourways in Malabrigo Sock to consider but the beauty of my skein of Hedgehog Fibres Sock in “Sin” was hard to resist. Very aptly named so.

Even on the swift it looked positively sinful

I love the pattern & love the yarn but they just didn’t seem to gel. I didn’t feel the love for my new project. After humming & hawing and knitting the first few rows….

…I bit the bullet & frogged. No point wasting days of knitting when my gut reaction is “Meh!”.

So on to the next skein. Malabrigo Sock in Persia has stepped up to the mark & I’m hoping that this relationship lasts a little longer than my last.

So, yes, I have turned my back on Sin (Sr. Máire, my old Dominican school Principal, would be so proud of me) but only briefly. I can see that gorgeous Sin on my feet in the near future.
