Help choosing the perfect yarn!
Are you ready to start working on a new knit or crochet project, but need help choosing the perfect yarn?
Start a conversation with me about it!
Do you want to use a different yarn than what is recommended in a pattern?
Are you coming up with your own design and want some help with where to begin choosing yarn?
How much yarn will you need for your project? - I can give you some great techniques to figure this out on your own!
Do you want a yarn that is bouncy and elastic; soft and cozy and/or firm and hard working? Want something machine washable, or is washing by hand okay to you?
What fiber content is best for the type of project you're making? Is it a sweater, hat, scarf, mittens, bag? There are important things to consider with each different type of project.
