|too much twist!|

Even after reskeining and washing this yarn has too much twist. At least once every round I have to stop to untangle; it's not doing a thing for my tension! Look at the photo, then try to imagine knitting with a working yarn that's all twisted up on itself like that! It's a shame because it's making the knitting of these socks unpleasant indeed. Grrrrrr.
That's the bad news. The good news is that while I've been avoiding knitting these socks I've accomplished a great deal on other fronts. Over the last couple of weeks I've knit thirty blanket squares for Knit-A-Square and crocheted four small squares for Kate's Blanket. Not to mention cleaning and organizing my yarn cupboard and sneaking in a few small stash-busting projects. But my Conwy Sock avoidance mood is over; I'm determined to finish this second sock in the next few days and be done with it. Who knows, maybe all that twist will make these socks really, really durable!
