Yarn 101

This next Christmas I intend on making most of the gifts for my children and their families. 

I never was much of a knitter or crocheter, but knew the basics. Usually I bought the cheapest yarn for items I made.

Lately I have been knitting and crocheting cotton yarn. It has a different feel and if I use it in the Texas humidity it sticks to the needles.

Today I picked up a book at the library called THE KNITTER'S BOOK OF YARN.
I need to expand my horizons with yarn. Today I am learning about fibers. Amazing information.

It is a pretty thick book so wish me well. Books have a tendency to put me to sleep. lol
