The Yarn The Sweater with Kathleen Dames

    • Hobbies

Ooh, it’s time to talk a little bit about yarn. My favorite! Today’s mantra is: Know thyself (or thy intended recipient). When choosing yarn, it helps to consider what kind of sweater you WANT and how you will take care of it. Different fibers and their preparation will affect the yarn and, in turn, your final knit.
 
Apologies for the technical difficulties that delayed this episode. I believe I have things worked out, and next week should be a longer episode (yay for new, bigger memory cards!). Before you know it, Episode Five: LIVE SHOW will be here, so start asking your questions now, and I will answer them on the air in a few weeks. The best way to ask is by hitting reply on a newsletter email message, but you can also leave comments on episode pages on YouTube or on posts on Instagram/Twitter or on my Ravelry group.
