… Will & Grace over here, 2 attractive skeins of 100% acrylic yarn I recently bought. I was looking out for mercerized cotton but these 2 were on sale and I totally forgot [about cotton] when I saw the mark down sign, what was it – 40% off, maybe 50%, more?
Will (left) was supposed to become a bolero for my little angel while Grace (right) was to metamorphose into a ravishing halter top like this one.
I grabbed them under the (naive?) assumption that one (a.k.a. crochet greenhorn moi) can crochet with any type of yarn. Weeeell … it’s hard, it resists, and it squeaks on my hook and I think the finished product (if by sheer stubbornness I manage to crochet something to wear with these) are going to be stiff and itchy. My enthusiasm is doused with a bucket of cold water 😥
That ‘double knitting’ label just didn’t speak to me at all. But now I’m looking at it with eyes full of blame 😡
Are there yarn specific to crochet only and others for knitting?
I guess I could keep Will & Grace till I stir my passions for knitting. But honestly, crochet is like a vast ocean I’ve merely dipped my toes in so far. So knitting seems like planets away. And I still want my bolero and halter top! 😥
So I’m in a sulking mood right now and thinking I need some solid education about yarn types and which are suitable for what.
If any of you out there can help me out, you’d be a blessing to li’l clueless me ❤
