Dear Knitty Designer:
I need to buy 3 skeins of the same sock yarn? Do I need to repeat myself? I will give you credit for having the decency to not call it a stash-busting project.
Letter from the Iditor #2
Dear Other Knitty Designer,
Please see the above letter, but multiply the indignation by 1.6!
AND...It has taken me over a month to knit a baby cardigan out of sock yarn; and you want me to knit an adult sweater out of sock yarn on sock sized needles?
The fact that knitting the XS/S size is equivalent to knitting 4 pairs of socks is not particularly reassuring, since a) I have not fit anything that is size XS/S since, um, ever (even in men's sizes I am usually a Medium), and b) unless I am unemployed, it takes me between 3 and 6 weeks to knit a pair of socks.
Let's do some math: 3 weeks x 5 pairs of socks(M/L calls for 5 balls) = 15 weeks. 6 weeks x 5 pairs of socks = 30 weeks. 4-7 months of knitting a sweater on wee little needles? Where do I sign up for the straightjacket fittings?
The world is going mad...and I am back in the ICU for a week in 8.5 hours...waaaah!
