Yarn yuk!

Postby gilbertandmartha » Wed Mar 26, 2014 7:17 pm

:roll: so I decided to make a blanket for me, I thought it would be better to go to my local-ish yarn shop to look at the choices. I bought the stuff that the pattern called for, just a few balls to check. And I hate it :cry: In the pictures of the patterns it looks really shiny and soft, and its not shiny at all and a bit scratchy.

Thankfully I've only done one ball so can take the rest back for a refund. but it just sucks.

But on a happier note, I did buy some gorgeous fingering weight yarn that IS shiny and soft, and I will make it into a scarf/cowl for next winter :widesmile:

I still hadn't 100% chosen but probably the squares one with the black boarder. Its noro K.... something. but its really dull looking and yucky. I'm disappointed

oh that is rubbish :hug: thank goodness you can take it back and you have realised now!

I wish my ripple blanket was softer but I couldn't afford to spend more on it than I did! I'm hoping when I'm done I can wash it and it will soften up a bit!
