When you see this:
You probably say: oh well, this is how it goes, you should expect that if your hand knits are well used, right?
But! what will you say if I tell you I finished knitting these socks at the end of July? yes, end of July 2010! And that Joe started wearing them only around November or December and he has quite a few hand knitted socks (he loves them) so they are in rotation with about 10 or so pairs?!?
And the yarn didn’t sit in my stash for years, I bought it at the end of December 2009 and I keep all my yarn in plastic bags with nice little cedar balls to keep them company.
I just check all the other skeins I got in the same shipment (yes, I bought a few, it was a very good sale, or so I thought at the time,,,,) and I can’t see any sign of unwanted visitors.
As a precaution, I separated those skeins and put each in its own bag with its own friendly little balls.
What makes me worry is the fact that there is a hole in each sock and I can’t see a rip sign,,,,
Will you please take a close look and tell me what you think:
Should I be very worried?
Should I freeze the sibling skeins of this one? wash them? air them? throw them all out?!?
Should I be mad?
Should I try to fix these socks or just throw them out?
Helpful ideas and suggestions will be greatly appreciated, thank you.
