Clown Barf

Clown barf, this term was illuminated to me by both a reader of this blog, and a fellow Stitch ’n Bitch knitter, when I expressed dismay at how these socks had been knit up.

They look nothing like what I thought they would, nor nothing like how they were described.  This was from Bumblebee Acres.

I bought this yarn, and others at the local Indy dyer yarn fair, Yarn Con, that I have been attending for years.  This year, I bought 3 skeins of sock yarn, only 1 pleased me, and that was from Lorna’s Laces.

I loved these socks, and they were gifted to my DIL.

So, a couple of weeks ago, I decided to tackle the last of the YarnCon purchases.  This is what the yarn looked like before being wound. From Mode Knit Yarn.

Let’s just say, that I was sorely disappointed with the results when knit up.  The only reason that these even got finished is that I wanted my beloved signature needles for my next project.  Amazing how you can knit fast just because you hate something so much and want to finish it.  I find the colors combination awful, dreary and poorly thought out.  How is that for a non-reccomendation?

I am done with kitchen sink dyers.  Tomorrow, I will post my newest sock yarn purchases which I am sure will please me.  Staying with the tried and true.
