The pattern is good; the yarn…

I bought this particular skein of Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn because the outside of the skein looks like this, which I think is rather pretty. The pattern, Spring Ripple Scarf, looks so good with this yarn!

The problem with Noro yarns is that sometimes the inside of the skein hides other colors; colors you would never have thought any person with working eyesight would choose to go with the colors on the outside of the skein:

I’m thinking this one’s going into the frogging pile. Anyone interested in buying a skein of Noro sock yarn from me?

Now what am I going to work on? *sniffle*
