Stop Mocking Me...

aka..."Tales of the B-ugly Yarn".

You've done it.  Don't even try to deny it.

The pity purchase.

You know the one, where you are in a small business and you feel like you NEED to buy something just to show support for their endeavor.

I have one such pity purchase that has been a thorn in my side for the last few years.  The colors match my living room, but, well, honestly, it is b-ugly yarn (the "pc" version of what I really want to call it).  It has been on and off the needles through so many potential projects that I have lost count.  Shoot, it has even been cast on FOUR times for different projects since midnight last night!!!

Please don't even bother to point out that given my startitis/enditis problems of late, I shouldn't even be messing around with anything else.  However, it was out of my control.  About 10:30 last night I went in to straighten up and reorganize my craft room cabinets.  After re-arranging and (fatal move) pausing to look through a couple of books, I wound up pulling stash baskets out and the b-ugly yarn started laughing at me.  I may have reacted in a bit of a cocky manner and that was all it took.  Game on...again.

At present, the fourth cast on (the whole two rows completed of garter stitch) is working out.  HA!  But, the darned stuff is whispering taunts at me from inside my knitting bag under my desk at the shop.

Who will be the ultimate winner?  Only time will tell.



  1. Heehee, I love how it is peaking out of the bag, lurking.

  2. LOL, I have a few b-ugly yarn in my stash, too. I actually like the colors of yours. Can't wait to see what it becomes.

  3. I'm intrigued to find out at it will be!
    I love the knitting bag too

  4. Couldn't you over-dye it?

    I hope it works out this time.

  5. I so identify with everything you posted here. Looking forward to seeing what you make with this yarn! Pretty knitting bag!
