What is “All Things Yarn”?
All Things Yarn is all about Crochet and Knit projects and patterns, along with the different yarns and tools used to create beautiful and amazing hand-made goodness. There are loads of patterns, yarns, and tools to be discovered. Often, it is difficult to make a choice as to what tools to use, the best yarn, or the perfect pattern to use for a creation. “All Things Yarn” reviews popular patterns, both knit and crochet, discuss hand-dyed yarns, then recommends helpful tools such as hooks and needles, accessories, books and magazines. These reviews are especially helpful for those who are just beginning with crochet or knitting.
How Did I Get Started with Crochet and Knit?
My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 11. We would sit every summer to crochet clothing, accessories, and home decor items. When I got older, my grandmother started teaching me to knit; however, she passed away before I really got going. I put the needles away for a very long time and stuck with crochet until a dear friend sat down with me and taught me how to knit an infinity scarf. From there, I found a local yarn store and learned about all the new hand dyed yarns that are available. You Tube and my local store, McKinney Knittery are often my go to for help and instruction when it comes to knitting.
