HOTH – it’s in the Details – A lesson in paying attention!

Have you heard the saying “it’s in the details”? You’d think as old as I am and my experience buying yarn all this time, I’d be better at paying attention!

So I saw an “All Call” to apply to be a pattern tester but they wanted you to use a specific yarn. So I rush to buy some, and because it was “on sale”, I made the order. Well, I got sucked into “buy $60 worth for free shipping ” gimmick…my order just arrived…

What, is this sorcery? LOL Surely 30 skeins of yarn cannot fit in this cute little package? Maybe, the shipment was split up, and only 1 made it today?

Nope…

I spent $63 on 30 skeins. They were on sale for 5 skeins for $10, making them $2 a piece. Not a terrible deal but for me not the best deal.

So now I am nursing a bruised ego because I should have paid attention to the “Size or Weight” of the skein. In this case is 1.7oz. 🤔

Ok so let’s turn this in to a positive because that’s what we do, right?

This is Paint Box Cotton yarn and I have not worked with it before. I have worked with another kind, let’s see how they compare.

First, the Paint Box colors are way more vivid than the others I have.

Second, the Paint Box yarn is a thinner 4 weight than the other brands. And Finally, it Definitely feels better or softer than the others.

I haven’t had a chance to work a swatch but in my experience, I’d say this is going to be Great to work with.

So have you worked with this brand before? Have you worked with this cotton yarn in particular? Please tell me about your experiences.
