I’m participating in a craft show in a few weeks and I’m doing a lot of crafting in preparation. One of the things I’m doing is knitting dishrags and potholders to sell. This requires plenty of cotton yarn. That’s why I was insanely excited to find these four HUGE cones of Peaches & Creme yarn in the super cheap clearance yarn aisle a few weeks ago.
The only color I truly liked was the yellow, but I didn’t buy this yarn for me. I bought it so that I could sell the stuff I made with it. My preferences for yarn color aren’t universal. Who knows? Some customers at the craft show might love these colors.
I still thought this yarn was kind of ugly, though.
The weird purple and green mix just didn’t “do it” for me. It looked like a really bland Mardi Gras parade in yarn form. The color name is Pageantry (#1201). I figured someone would like it, though, so I started knitting a hair kerchief with it.
I kept on knitting, and lo and behold! It’s beautiful! Now I like this yarn. A lot.
Somehow, the yarn looked awesome once I started knitting with it. Who’da thunk it!
So, yeah. This yarn fooled me. Has this ever happened to you?
