#knitchat 1/20/2011 – Selecting Yarn

Yarn is what keeps most of us knitters going. Over the past decade or so it seems like knitters have many more choices. There’s so much to choose from. Sometimes you want the softest of soft to touch your hands as you work. Sometimes you just need that workhorse yarn to get the job done. This #knitchat we’ll take some time to reflect on our favorites and our dislikes when it comes to yarn. Also, I may be a few minutes late to this one. Just go ahead and start introductions 🙂
