This is probably section but here goes anyway. I'm sure a lot of you know I work in a store. A lady returned a ball of yarn because it didn't work right. I have been trying to figure out how the yarn misbehaved.

Funny. I'm sure she would have had a reply to that if you had asked!

That is just so rude...she should have explained herself and returned the whole ball...

Maybe it took too many breaks?

Bad yarn! BAD, BAD YARN! Shame! It didn't work right? Wonder if I could take back a couple of relatives for the same reason? Hmmm......

Gosh, I assume she did return the whole ball!! At least, I sure hope so.

She probably didn't know she was talking to a knitter (I wonder if the OP works in a LYS or a big box store that sells yarn). I would say the yarn didn't work right/misbehaves if it split a lot while knitting or I couldn't get gauge for the project I bought the yarn for. Of course, I'd have probably kept it for stash rather then return it.

I work at Walmart and it's sometimes fun to read what peoples reasons for returns. Looking at the returned yarn showed it had been used. We had a TV return because of a fist size whole in the screen.

My guess would be whatever she wanted to make with it wasn't turning out the way she pictured. Or perhaps she found it difficult to work with.

Well, I'll bet that TV didn't work right, either! Probably neither did the fist or foot that went through it!

I'm pretty sure that misbehaving yarn has a lot to do with why I have a fabulous stash! Why she didn't add it to hers I don't understand. I wouldn't be surprised if she need just a smidge and returned the unused yardage, classy.

I was really annoyed by my LYS once when I bought several skeins of yarn for a sweater, and after winding 3-4 skeins into balls, I noticed that the skeins didn't all match. Different dye lots I hadn't noticed in the store. I took them back but she would only accept the ones that hadn't been wound! She didn't have any more of the lot I had wound, and I was sure as heck not going to buy more! I took the partial refund and my nicely-wound balls and went home. Over the years I have used that yarn for hats, scarves, and a really nice pair of slippers.
