Happy International Crochet Month from the WeCrochet Podcast. This episode is all about YARN!
First, Sara, Katelyn, and Heather talk about how they feel when they get new yarn, and what they do while they’re waiting for the yarn delivery truck to arrive. They also share which projects they’re currently working on.
Next, Katelyn and Sara drop all their yarn knowledge from ply, twist, weight, to wraps per inch, fiber, put-up, and more. There are a lot of things that go into choosing the right yarn for your next project.
Finally, Heather chats with Wendy Peterson of YarnSub.com about the site’s useful purpose of suggesting appropriate yarn substitutes, Wendy’s fiber background, and a unique tip for selecting yarns for crocheters.
