After a long careful thought, I decided to join the craze of crocheting with Scheepjes Whirl yarn. This yarn is so effin’ expensive, but I think it is worth the savings that I have at the moment, only to have one Dragon Belly Shawl made out of it. Also after long and very very hard thinking, I cast my option to Rosewater Cocktail Whirl. I will have to wait until May arrive, though, because I asked a colleague of mine who is coming over to Indonesia, to make the purchase and lessen the shipping fee through Rascol website.
I am a member of Scheepjes Whirl Creations! group on Facebook and I have gotten too many options on which Whirl I want to have. I know that I need to choose wisely because the yarn will cost me nearly half a million Rupiah to buy. So, I did some research on how each colourway would look like when they are knitted or crocheted by simply searching keywords on the group posts. At first, I stumbled upon Turkish Delight Whirl, because it is shades of purple-fuchsia-and everything in between. But when I saw how it turn out as people are crocheting with it, I thought, “Hey, I already dyed that colourway before and made a leafy pattern from Mypicot #2060.” #notliula
And then, I looked at Green Tea Ripple, Dandelion Munchies, and some more colourways before I set my option to Rosewater Cocktail. I really hope the yarn is worth the price and the hardships that I went through for choosing the
perfect colourway. Errata: there never is a perfect colourway. Every colourway is always as enticing as the other. In the meantime, I have to be very very patient on waiting for May 2018 to arrive. Although I will not be able to open my shop during that month, but I will have a Whirl in my hand. Perhaps, this is the 300k spending that I won’t regret.
