LOL You agreed with me! Yeah, variegated yarn can hide a multitude of sins (errors) I've found, they simply aren't as obvious. When I was trying to learn to make the stitches and do it correctly, I didn't want that. You needed that scarf in a hurry so the variegated was the absolutely best choice. For me, having something done quickly usually isn't an issue. I found the same thing was true in crocheting, a pattern stitch can get lost in the colors and mistakes can get lost in colors and stitch patterns. Ain't it great??!!
California's supposed to be warm! That's cold!
