I know I filled you all in on the fact that I can’t do math when it comes to yardage (I am good on number of skeins, but had a brain cramp when it came to realizing all skeins are not the same), and I think I told you I spent a bit of time searching Ravelry for a match.
In all of that process, I came up with an alternative, and ordered some yarn that I thought would look nice with my yarn of choice. I also reached out to a Ravelry user – the ONLY ONE with the right lot of yarn in her stash.
The paler yarn came in the mail today.
But I am not going to immediately cast on, because the wonderful Raveler emailed to say that she (I assume it is a she, I don’t actually know the name yet) would ship me the yarn in her stash. And she doesn’t want anything in return, it is just leftover from a past project!
So, I will wait for it to arrive, and if it is all as perfect as I suspect it will be, I will save this peachy-coral yarn for a future project. Note that I got three skeins, even though I think I only need two. I am learning. Of course, if I try to do this project in that color alone, I will need 4… So I guess I WON’T do that. 🙂
Now, I won’t let her generosity go
unpunished unthanked, of course. I need to start thinking of ways to show my appreciation. If this was you, what would make YOU feel that your gesture was very much appreciated?
