...when you started knitting with it you really don't care for it?
Several weeks ago I bought a pink and grey varigated wool yarn that I thought was very pretty. I thought it would be a very nice scarf. Well, I started a cable scarf with this yarn, and the more I knit with it the less I like it. I have about 12 inches complete and I really don't like the way the colors varigate. The pinks are light for about two inches, then darker, and then it begins to look grey with a hint of pink. Sorry, it is very hard to describe.
The lady at my LYS was telling us last week about a woman that comes in who doesn't seem to have a lot of money. I guess one day the store owner offered her some of the yarn ends she had left over and the woman came back with it all knit in baby blankets for the Linus project. I am thinking of frogging about six inches and giving all of this yarn (I have two skeins) to the LYS so they can pass it on.
I guess I am just a little frustrated that this yarn turned out like this. Am I being silly, or has it happened before?
Thanks for letting me vent.
