So out of curiosity, where does everyone get their yarn?

I've been ordering yarn online but due to my mishap in ordering, I headed into both Jo-ann and Michaels. Jo-ann had a pretty poor selection, Michaels was better. I'm happy to see a lot of vegan friendly yarns but would like to see more cotton/bamboo/etc.

There is a yarn shop not too far from me but they are all about the wool.

I almost always go to Michael's. They have the best selection and prices, and there are 3 of them within a reasonable distance for me to go there. I don't like to order yarn online unless I already know the yarn. If I had all the money in the world, I would do that more, but I just can't afford to buy yarn and have it not be what I wanted...so I prefer to shop at a local store (obviously not locally owned, but locally located). There are a few locally-owned yarn shops around, but they're all super-woolly and/or just too expensive.

I get all my yarn online. Michaels is far from me and way expensive. The other yarn shops are also very wool oriented. One shop replied they only carry the quality wool yarns when I asked it they had Berroco Comfort yarn. I'm sure Berroco would love to know they think their acrylic yarns are non-quality.

I'll try a new yarn when I'm buying other yarn I already use. I have had only one bad experience in buying new, unknown to me yarn.

I think I am going to start this on my train trip down to virginia this week. My whole house is just going to be covered in stuff I've crocheted, but that's ok!

I finally gave away the 5 hats I made last month. I ended up giving them to the nursing home to use as bingo prizes. It'll be funny if I see anyone walking around wearing one.

I've been using Michaels, but I might switch to online... for better quality.

I have discovered this etsy shop of patterns: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TinyOwlKnitsPatterns
Right now I am working on this: https://www.etsy.com/listing/66442111/f ... ome_active and that is really fun and going super fast since it's like 90% cable. :)

I made this blanket!
sorry for the giant blurry instagram shot. Here's another bad instagram picture of the whole thing. it's about 37". I really love it! I gave it to a friend and made a second one and it only takes 2 skeins of impeccable loops and threads yarn, which is usually $2.99. really cheap present!

Image

I also taught myself tapestry crochet or whatever it's called when you make a picture with a different color yarn. this was super fun!
Image


Not sure what to make next.

My aunt just taught me how to crochet! I made a scarf for my boo and a headband for me. My hands hurt a little bit but it is so worth it. I am so excited to make a whole bunch of stuff.
I have skimmed through this thread but have not thoroughly read all of it, so i apologize if this is repetitive. Is there anything non-vegan i have to look out for in yarn except wool? I know some food dyes have animal products, so i am not sure if any animal products are used in yarn dying.

My local michaels are pretty crepe. All rough or cheap synthetics. I like Caron simply soft and the bamboo blends, which I buy from Joann's. I really love one of my local yarn shops, which only sells natural fibers, so they have a huge selection of hemp, cotton, bamboo, flax, and corn. And lotsa wool, but they're the only non-judgy lys I've found (including supposedly vegan-friendly sf...).

I also like to buy online from little knits. They have great sales! Oh, speaking of online, I also buy through ravelry. Lots of people sell off their stash for cheap!

Oh. Oh my goodness. Ok, someday soon I need to learn to knit, and then I need to perfect all the difficult bits so I can make jumpers and change colours and stuff, because I NEED that jumper. And when I can make it, I will make it in all the colours.

Want want want.

Woah! That's an awesome sweater!

I totally forgot to post pictures of my sweater that I just finished last week. I started it November 9 and took some time away from it in December, so it only took about 2 months total:

I really loved the pattern. It's this pattern from ravelry. It was a really fun knit, done top-down with no seams.

Well done, joyfulgirl! And stripes are always awesome.

I just wanted to check whether I remember how to crochet a granny square, and now I'm addicted to making them. I thiiiiink this may become a shawl or something. In *very* bright colours.

Not perfect but the imperfections add to the DIY aspect.

This just in: I can make a half-granny square. A triangular one. (So this is going to be a triangular shawl now.)

And ijdi, I just found a pattern for a flower granny square. I think I'm going to need more yarn. :))

That's really nice, love the colours. Also, you look incredibly similar to someone I went to school with! Do you have any relatives in England?

i love it, phoenix! is this your first crochet project?

I'm going on a cruise in a few weeks and i want to crochet, but didn't want to bring a bulky thing, so i'm going to try making a doily.

First in forever. I did some granny squares some years ago for the hem of my knitted hippie dress (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/KaosPho ... nd-pelliza) but haven't tried anything since.

And whoa, lace! I'm kind of scared of lace patterns, but I *love* seeing other people's projects. :)

I love that Phoenix!! I can knit intricate lace, but for the life of me I can't figure out granny squares. And I really want a granny square afghan!
