A Tale of Two Yarns - 2KCBWDAY1


Part of any fibre enthusiast’s hobby is an appreciation of yarn. Choose two yarns that you have either used, are in your stash, or which you yearn after and capture what it is you love or loathe about them.

Yarn #1: Anything from Fresh From the Cauldron
Jen's yarns are stunning. The colors are striking, the yarn bases are wonderful, and the customer service from Jen is excellent. I'm so glad that I bought FFtC yarn in large quantities when I could, because it is pretty near impossible to come by now. That's why stashing is important, friends! Buy it while you can!

Yarn #2: Knit Picks Swish Worsted
This is an incredible workhorse yarn. It's soft, superwash, 100% wool, which makes it ideal for babies/kids. It comes in approximately 8 zillion colors, and it's very affordable. I particularly like to use it for blankets:

Pinwheel Blanket

Coco's Blanket

(Please feel free to take bets on whether I can keep this up for a full week. I'm trying to establish a "writing every day" habit for school, and I figured that starting with blogging every day for a week might be easier than starting with the hardcore science. We'll see!)


  1. You can do it! I believe!

    Also, brb, lusting after your FFTC stash! :P

  2. You get to see it in person in just a few weeks!!! I should take inventory before you arrive, shouldn't I? ;)
