Receiving more of the devillish Angora Blue yarn is bittersweet. Sure, I need more to make a little cardie, but this yarn has been spanking my arse. Hard.
I ordered the last 3 skeins of blue available from Elann. I took that bullet for you people, should you be tempted to order some. It’s actually nice, soft yarn but it’s just not working with me. Everytime I think things are going ok, wham! Rip it baby.
In order to cushion the blow of having to order more Angora, I also bought a bag of Gigi. I know, dumb, but there it is. It was totally cheap and kind of an impulse buy. You know the logic – well, it’ll cost only $1 more in shipping and that seems like a bargain. I think the colorway I bought is called Golden Plum. I didn’t see the gold sheen to the plum yarn until I got it. It’s rather lovely, completely synthetic and will make a fun little top. Did I mention a bag of 10 is all of $16. See, how could I not?
Now, back to the hell that is Angora.
