I am now saying: I am never using handpainted overpriced yarn again.
When I discovered handpainted yarn I was in overwhelmed. All those gorgeous colors I could create with. I bought too much of it at prices I would never pay today.

Some of it bleeds so much I have to wash it before knitting with it, which I find extremely annoying.
For cold climate I do not get the warmth I need from the garments. I have also seen some of it color fading when used. So I am never going to buy it again...
Anyway, when I buy overpriced yarn I think of it as very special and I need a special project for it.
Totally rubbish of course, but that is how it ends up in loads of stashed yarn.
I took most of it out yesterday and found my pattern Lifelines and now it is going to be a very long scarf. At least I can use it during spring and summer - and summer is short in Norway and the pilling will not be that bad...
I like the color schemes though. And I will enjoy that thinking that I got a lovely project from all that yarn.
If you beleive in yourself and never say never
you can achieve whatever
