[FONT=“Lucida Sans Unicode”]Hello I have 2 questions.
When changing yarn because you need a different color, for instance making stripes. I find it a hassle to cut the yarn every time I change colors, especially if the stripes are close together. In one pattern I was looking at, it says “Do not cut the yarn between color changes, just carry it loosely up one side of the scarf.” How might I go about doing this? Or is there a different way to not cut yarn between color changes?
The yarn that I’m using on my current project is a bit rough, so I want to soften up the final product a bit. Would washing it help, or do I need to use fabric softener or something like that?
Thank you so much! :)[/FONT]
