Yes, I know it's the 4th of July but there is nothing going on here this year. I'm still floor sitting with a gimpy Pup who needs a bath like nobody's business. We are waiting for the surgeon to get back to us on when she can get wet. We had to email her a photo on Friday of the incision and now we wait for her decision. I'm betting she's on vacation and won't get back to us until Tuesday. Meanwhile, I've been collecting bad yarn. Lots of bad yarn.
The box that holds my Audun squares is getting full so I wanted to start joining them but that meant deciding on a color. I thought a dark gray would work so I started ordering.
The first one had the right texture but it was too dark. It looks like black to me and I didn't want black. Strike one.
My second try was closer to the color I wanted but I hated the shiny texture. It doesn't work with the acrylic the blocks are made of at all. Strike two.
The third try was pure and absolute insanity. I didn't notice that the yarn was a gradient. I just saw it was gray and bought four whole skeins. Strike three.
I thought I would save money and time by going the Amazon route instead of the Knit Picks route but I ended up ordering some gray Brava after all....AND it turned out that the Brava was on sale making it cheaper than any of these. Go figure.
