Pride and Angst


I'm knitting a pair of socks out of Lamb's Pride superwash, and it's bloody weird. I don't like it. The suggested needle gauge is 5 - 5.5 mm. I'm using 4, and it still seems too fine for the needles. It's stretchy and odd, and my tension is way off. Grump grump grump. Can't say as I'll be up for using it again - which is sad, 'cos it's soft enough for my cashmere-snob boyfriend and it comes in lovely colours. I'd rather use larger-gauge yarn and needles, but bring on the Jawoll, Opal and Fleece Artist!!!
