Yarn 101: Which Stitch? An online class 1

    Let’s face it, we have access to a lot of fabulous yarn. I wish my Grandma Grace were alive today to see the abundance of fuzzy goodness we have to play with in our yarn stores. With this choice comes a kind of overwhelming sense of open creativity.

 Beyond color choices, what kinds of stitches do you use? What if you want to have some stretch, what if you don’t want any stretch? What if you want to do bullion stitches, or basketweave? Can you do that with textured yarn? What about broomstick and tunisian?

A little bit of symbolism

How do you work with Mohair or ribbon yarn, or textured fluffiness.  What stitches work best for colorwork and which stitches for amigurumi? What if you want to make something with smooth fabric or make fabric that has relief stitches, which yarn will work best?

 I get asked these questions and more ALL the time. I get asked in yarn stores, and certainly online. Why? Well, because I crochet all of the time and I make yarn specifically designed for crochet. So, they say that makes me an expert, and if that’s true then I suppose I should let others in on some of my secret and arane knowledge of the goodness that is yarn.

That’s why I have been crocheting like a mad woman making swatches for our next online class, Which Stitch?  It happens today Sunday September 20, 2011 at 11am Pacific!
