Rainy days ...

Rainy days ... I understand that we need them so that our flowers and grass will grow. But, you see, it IS February. Aren't we supposed to be getting snow? And if it won't snow, then the lake ought to be frozen so that we can ice skate. Nothing is quite working out the way it is supposed to.

And speaking of not working out well ... This is my friend Joyce's baby blanket for the Durham Crisis Pregnancy Centre. Notice the stripe of dark colour:

Do you know what that is? That, my friends, is where the yarn company did a crappy job of repairing a broken yarn. So ... do you leave it there, or rip it out?

After much discussion, it was decided to rip it out. Nominally, it could have been left in place, since it wasn't nearly as obvious while the blanket was lying flat. But you know what? When knitting anything, whether it be for charity or not, it is so much nicer when you actually like what you've done.

Joyce will be contacting the manufacturer of the yarn to inquire about a refund or replacement.
