Disappointed crochet day!

Next week is my close friend's birthday, and I love to give her a special handmade gift. I decided to make a drum-bag, was found on internet and it's really a lovely pattern. I used all my Sunday to crochet with hope of nice present... And the result, you know, I just wanna throw it away!!!

Although I know the yarn quality delivered is not as my wish when placing order, it's not soft as the ads, so stiff and the color is much darker, I tried with patience to get it done. But the more I tried, the more I felt badly let down!

I called the yarn shop and they promised to change another kind of yarn for me within a week. I will return them all, including the "drum-bag", if possible, huhhhhh...!!!

Anyway this is also an experience for me, and for any experience, we always pay bid! :)

Sometimes we all have a bad day. :( Please be VERY proud of how well you have progressed in such a short time! Even your first pieces were good for a beginner. The bolero you crocheted recently is absolutely flawless!

I live in a very rural US area that does not have any yarn stores; all my purchases are online. It's also difficult for me to decide if the yarn I select will be correct for my projects. I think we'll catch on as we gather more experience :)

Thank you all so much for your encouragement, it really makes my day! Yes we learn from such experience in our life, and after that we will be better!

I greatly appreciate your comments. Take loads of care and keep in touch! :)
