Irked, I tell you. Just a bit.
Look at this (sorry for the fuzziness, took the photo in a hurry).
I haven't had time to knit, but it only takes 2 seconds to buy yarn over the internet. I've had a hankering for some Malabrigo and thought I had scored a deal on 7 skeins.
I was at the Destash Blog and when I saw the original picture of the 7 skeins, a fleeting thought went through my mind, "Hmmm. Looks like some Manos that I already have." I shook it off and went straight to PayPal.
But now look. The wound ball on the left is supposed to be Malabrigo. The skein on the right, Manos, from my stash. Don't they look the same thick and thin?? They feel the same.
Irked! But only a bit. On the bright side, I now have 10 skeins of #109 Manos to make a sweater. And I can continue my quest for the perfect Malabrigo. Hehehe.
