Another thing that I discovered at the end of 2009 was the ISO/Destash group on Ravelry. I was able to take advantage of some great destashes and find some truly awesome people to trade with. A perfect example of both was with two skeins of Mal worsted. I found some in pink for a great price in a destash. And, since I hadn’t tried that particular yarn before and had heard great things about it, I went ahead and bought it. Of course, i should have remembered that I’m not a fan of pink. And when the yarn came, it was *really* pink.
So, I put it out there that I was looking to trade my two skeins of pink for 2 skeins in a different color. And, luckily, I found a taker.
And, of course, I had to knit that beauty up super quick. So, a new hat was born.
