RIP Grey Seedstitch Scarf

Many many moons ago I posted my thoughts on my oldest UFO.  As I recall the general feedback at the time was that I should just go ahead and frog it and use that nice soft alpaca yarn for something else.  After some consideration, I agreed.  But knowing that once I frogged it all I would still have to soak and re-wind the yarn to remove the kinks, I've been dragging my heels. Especially since while the yarn is lovely, I didn't have even the vaguest idea what I'd do with it.

Fortune has smiled upon me - someone else wants the yarn.  Someone who wants it badly enough to be willing to take it "as is" - frogging the WIP and rewinding the yarn themselves. Someone who had sock yarn to trade.

So out with old:

And in with the new:

Hello lovely Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock!  I have no idea how you're going to knit up with those interesting color combinations, but welcome to the stash.   Make yourself comfortable (but not too comfortable) and introduce yourself to the others. We'll get together and talk patterns sometime soon, but if you have any thoughts of your own, feel free to speak up!

That sounds like a nice way to move on. There is nothing like a little of the LL to help a girl get over an old relationship!
