My first yarn bought (before I really learned to knit) - was three skeins of Liberty yarn. I bought it after seeing similarly colored yarn in Sarasota, at A Good Yarn (where they have yarn based on the local beaches, coastal and littoral features, and sea mammals, fish and corals. I loved the agua and blue colors - so I bought the skein of Liberty wool thinking it was merely blue, yellow and light green with a hint of pink. It turns out it is mostly pink.
Just a hink of pink.
A tiny little row of pink . . .
No . . . mostly pink!
Yesterday I took Knit Fixes I - which teaches you to easily fix your mistakes (even very very late in your project). I loved the class and I do think it will be worth it.
Dear readers, has this mistake (the wrong yarn) happened to you? This mistake drives home that these knitted projects are heavily dependent on the correct yarn selection.
Off to my next project!
