I have a few knitting gripes this holiday season!
#1: Patterns without any schematics or measurements. Imogen I am talking about you on this one. Gorgeous jacket, great side to side construction but come on. I am not a visual person and need something to go on here.
#2: Bleeding yarn. JJ's Specialty Montage 10 ply, I'm looking at you here. I love the dark colors in your Paua colorway and I think you're going to turn into a great Imogen but in the meantime my hands and Denise needle tips turn color every time I pick you up. A wool bath soak is in your future.
