(I borrowed this photo from the Crystal Palace Website, where you can see all the lovely colorways of Mochi Plus self-striping yarn)
I bought this gorgeous yarn at Black Sheep Wool Co. months ago. I knitted my favorite baby hat design.
It is so hideous that I couldn’t give it to the intended new mommy. I should have used one of their other colors!
I was reminded of this experience when Jane Brocket published this too-true post about the beauty of handpainted yarn…before it gets knitted up!
Please don’t go saying that this hat is beautiful. SOMEHOW, it is just marvelously photogenic, but I know you’d agree that in real life, it’s atrocious.
