Mangyle...my arch nemesis!

Mangyle, why do you hate me so? What have I ever done to you? I don't deserve to be taunted yet that doesn't stop you. Just when I get comfortable reading your chart and knitting with 3 different colors (only 3 colors...but 8 bobbins!), you screw with me by tangling and undoing my neatly wound homemade bobbins. You cause a level of frustration that makes me want to throw you across the room in aggrevation. You continue with these antics because you know that I will not give up on you. You know that I want nothing more than to conquer you. You laugh at the thought, but it will happen. I want you to submit!

Hrm. With unruly intarsia, sometimes the only way of dealing with it is to be the alpha.

"You will be beautiful. You! Bobbins! You will behave!"

It's lovely so far. Be strong.

I love argyle with a passion, but I've wondered if the bobbins play nice when knitting. I guess it takes a lot of patience! Man, can you imagine if the whole thing was all argyle? I shudder at the thought.

I agree with Jasmin, show it who's boss. Threaten it with scissors!
