Look, pooling 😦 I so wanted this yarn not to pool. I had hoped (its that h word again!) that once I started to knit the flowers that the pooling would stop, but it hasn’t. I really wanted wildflowers springing up on a background of a summer meadow (if rather a pink one!), not looking like they were planted in concrete troughs.
One thing I have learn’t in life is that you have to live with what you’ve got and I know that I’m not going to make a bag or a scarf out of this yarn. I know it will end up as socks and that it will pool. I also know that Mum is not as critical as I and all she will see is a warm pair of comfy socks to toast her tootsies in. On a positive note, I mastered the “wildflower stitch”, it took me a while, but I managed it in the end. 🙂
