I ordered yarn online 😐
I don’t want to belabor the fact that I am a crochet newbie but I really do think that crocheters at my level are better off buying yarn in person. We would benefit greatly from the tactile inspection of it, allowing us to better assess whether we can work with it or whether it’s the type we want for the project.
But what if I’m somewhere there are no yarn stores. And I need to indulge my passion. Online, right?
Ta-daaaah! Look what the DHL guy brought me:
And now comes the moment of truth (or reaction):
I did NOT expect these to be so tiny!!! 😕 😕 😕
Okay I need to learn to read labels care-ful-ly next time. (AND TO NOT BE BLINDED BY CUTE COLORS MIXED TOGETHER!) XD
Now of course, infinitely wiser 🙄, I go back to its description and the terms “weight:10 grams, length: 50 m” leap out at me and make sense. Duh! XD
On to the next:
Now these are 15% Alpaca, 10% Viscose, 10% Wool, 65% Acrylic. I remember thinking: Okay! I know acrylic. I’ve worked with that before. And it makes up 65%, so I should be safe, right?
Well, it’s not too bad! Phew! I plan to make a blanket for my husband with these.
And now the favorite of the batch:
80% viscose, 20% metallic lurex. Whatever! It is absolutely PRETTY 😍 😍 😍
I plan to make myself a blouse with this. A little glitter never hurt anyone, right?
So that’s my yarn lesson of the day. I still would prefer actually seeing and feeling the yarn, but a crocheter’s gotta do what a crocheter’s gotta do 🙂 All is well that ends with glitter,yes? Yes! ❤
Have you, or anybody you know, had a similar ~funny~ experience buying yarn online? I’d love to hear about it, and learn from it too 🙂
Happy weekend everyone! 🙂
