When you make something you know you won't like, with yarn you don't like, in a color you don't like, just so you can knit?
Strange, yes. I won a prize basket at the Rhode Island Yarn Crawl last year (pretty cool!) so I've had 5 skeins of purple Berroco Vintage DK and the pattern booklet for the Shibuya pattern on hand for a while. However, I was really unhappy with Berroco Vintage when I used it for Kaari (it pills and fuzzes a lot) and I don't really wear short sleeve sweaters (it seems like an oxymoron) and I don't like the color purple very much.
So I cast it on a few times then pulled it out because I knew I wouldn't like it. But then last month I guess I just wanted to plow through my stash and see what happens. There is nothing wrong with this pattern - just something wrong with me. This is a really nice pattern actually, I made no modifications, it knit up quickly, and I love that you don't block it to keep the texture.
