My Perfect Pie Shawl sucks, due to unforeseen yarn issues.
I can admit this. I have come to grips with the fact that I am loathing the heck out of the thing right now. I don't like the yarn, I don't like the fuzziness, the color, the way it looks, the way it drapes, the way it feels. Even the cats do not like this yarn. Bagheera (big cat) won't touch it, even though she's all over my knitting normally. (I may have spoiled her with Malabrigo)
This is another case of GAAK (growth as a knitter). I will be abandoning this project. I am quitting it RIGHT NOW. Feh.
The yarn is going in the trash. It's AWFUL.
Positive side: I like the pattern. I will probably try to knit it again using yarn that doesn't suck massively.
On to another project. And some good news!
The Itty Bitty Kitty Committee (as seen below) went to the vet today. We have confirmation of sex (male), a completely clean bill of health, vitamins and dewormer. And the vet waived his fee today because I rescued the little guy. Great vet.
Now all we need is a name. Georgia wants to name him Schwalkey. I said no.
