I have done the unmentionable!

Posted by barb_roselover_in (My Page) on

I have changed my mind midstream and need about three skeins of yarn that I got. Is there anyplace where they have extra skeins of yarn that you could maybe match--like the overstocks catalogs. This is a coral color and it says on the yarn it was made for Jo-Ann Fabrics. I went into our local store yesterday and was told they don't have that anymore. Does anybody have any positive hints as to what I can do other than just forget it? Thanks - Barb

Would help if you could tell us what weight of yarn like
Sport, Worsted or what?
Thank you.

RE: I have done the unmentionable!

Sometimes it helps if you have kept a copy of the yarn wrapper to post a copy on here as it may jog our memory. Also, some of the sites like Ravelry have a board where you can ask to see if anyone has some. Good luck.

RE: I have done the unmentionable!

This is what it says on the wrapper around the yarn:
a Jo Ann exclusive; Bellezza Collection;100% Wool; 50 grams; Art #07821747 Color #2145 Tesoro Yarn Peach. Is that sufficient? What should I do as a next step? Thanks so much. This is very discouraging, but then I shouldn't have changed my mind, I guess.Barb
