They do, big time. All that overpriced yarn in bizarre colors and weird fibers, all those itty-bitty needles and fiddly patterns with confusing directions, knitting endlessly around and around and then you have to do it all over again. Don't even get me started on the Kitchener stitch... Besides, I hear you can buy plain cotton socks really cheap at Walmart. No more knitting socks for me.
So what else is there to knit? Well, I like knitting lace, and I read that lace is really big this year:
The Return of Lace as a Major Fashion Trend
so I'm switching to lacy knitted lingerie. Maybe I can use up some of my sock stash.
