Well the toe, foot and heel of the Dakota socks are no more...and the yarn resembles curly soup (what B grew up calling raman :-). I am in the process of re-knitting the heel with fewer short row decreases and in the 'solid' black STR to extend the life of the main hank of yarn. I will be at the foot by lunch easily, so my question is this:
How many of you REALLY uncurl your yarn before you re-knit it?
I remember when I first started knitting reading about how to uncurl yarn in Stitch 'n Bitch and after the Kyoto disaster of 2005, I even put this practice into effect. But what I want to know is this REALLY necessary? Is it one of those things that in a perfect world one would always uncurl the yarn or do you REALLY need to uncurl it because your re-knitting will be thoroughtly jacked?
This is coming from someone who would rather just start re-knitting the sock foot so that I can just get on with things, but will take the time to fix the yarn if I really need to. Any suggestions, advise, or admonishments are accepted.
