Hmpf.

My Kim Hargreaves kit came yesterday.
ButtercupKit

And this is how I feel about it:

PeekabooKitty
I don't like the color. I've seen it before in the store and remembered it as a rich dark pink. In reality (the photo didn't bring it out well) it looks like a strange faded bubblegum pink. Maybe it needs to grow on me.
The weekender bag is getting there. I made Saturday my deadline.

looking forward to seeing the completed weekender bag. i am currently trying to convince my mom she wants to make it for me (i don't sew but love to buy amy butler fabrics!).

cute kitty, sorry about the color issue. hopefully it will grow on you.

hmm... I don't like that pink either! Is it supposed to be the same shade as the picture? Cute kitty!

awww sorry dude. give it a couple of days, if not return the sucker

gleek said...

you could always make the garment and then overdye it too. but returning it might be easier if you're not in the mood to dye :)

What I shame you don't like the colour - I ordered the same kit and I think the same colour although mine is not as bubblegum pink looking. Anyway if its any consolation it is a lovely pattern and is a quick knit despite it being 4-ply. I am loving mine.

I have some 4-ply in apple green if you're interested :-) Or can you exchange the pink for another color?

Vanessa said...

What color is that>? Cheaky? I ordered the same kit but mine is not here yet.

Das tut mir so leid, daß dir die Farbe nicht so gefällt, das ist das Problem mit dem Bildschirm, da hab ich auch schon so manche Überraschung erlebt. Oder das Gedächtnis spielt einem Streiche und gaukelt Farben vor, die man gern hätte, irgendwie und vielleicht und mal sehen. Falls das Cheeky ist, hab ich hier eine Farbkarte vor mir liegen, und sie gefällt mir ganz gut, ich mag die ein bißchen müden Farben ganz gern. Also, wenn du dich absolut nicht damit anfreunden kannst, nehm ich sie dir gerne ab. Ich hab im Moment grad so ein Faible für 4 Ply Cotton, obwohl ich noch keine Masche damit gestrickt hab, aber die Qualität gefällt mir so gut.
Freu mich schon auf ein Foto deiner fertigen Tasche, kannst du einen Internet-Shop für die Anleitung und die AB-Stoffe empfehlen?
Ich wünsch dir ein wunderwunderschönes kreatives und sonniges Wochenende,
viele liebe Grüße,
Suzi

what a pity you don't like the colour. i have been known to make those mistakes myself and i hate it when that happens.

i suggest you return it if you are not happy - it will save alot of heartache in the longterm.

diana said...

Damn! I say return it for a better color.

Oh, bummer - any chance that you'll come to appreciate the color? Can you peek out from behind your paw and just check?

bekka said...

i love buttercup and want to order it in red, but haven't yet. hope you start liking the color, but overdying might be a great solution. lots of luck.

That yarn is not the same as the picture. I'd call them.
