Okay, let me tell you about my little story here. One day I want so much to crochet a nice lacey top, and so I came to a crafty shop and bought several ball of yarns.

The shop is quite crowded and there were many people who stand in line behind me.

The crowd was disturbed me , I couldn’t stay any longer on there so I was just saw the yarn on etalase I choosed my favorite color and pay it without paying attention for the yarn material.

I didn’t even ask the seller what kind of yarn those are. Besides from the start I talked to her, she didn’t seem nice. So yeah you know what I mean right? Quick in quick out.

When I got home, I realized that the fiber of the yarn is polyester.

I was so excited when I got the yarn, the color was so beautiful, so without any further do I started to crochet my project straightly.

When I finish half of it, I decided to have break time several minutes.

When I was laying down I randomly search article that have review about what was the yarn material suppose to use for, just to make sure that I’m in the right path.

Then at that time I realized I bought a wrong yarn for my project. The material of the yarn is synthetic, so it’s better to use it for a non wearable project like table cloth, napkin, etc.

At the end, I bought new several yarn from online store (grin) kekeke^^. It’s not that I regret my decision, after that I learnt something though.
