Oh my how I want to tackle soakers. Oh my how I need to learn about yarn. I truly want to just grab some old yarn and start a hat to tackle this whole knitting in the round thing (that looks so easy in the video mmmhumm).
I know soakers should be wool and I’m familiar with lanolizing. That’s for later. It seems to me a baby hat would be a simpler start. I want a uber soft gives you the shivers baby hat. I know I need to knit one or two with more basic yarn to get down my tension before I tackle some of the soft fuzzies make me shiver yarn…okay…I’m a yarn newb. Is there a link I missed on this site that gives you the yarn low down? Anyone have some general tips or links to where I can get a better grasp that looking at gorgeous yarn in the store and not being sure if it will work to my needs? Half the time I can’t even figure out if it’s washable.
I looked into the online shops featured here…and got lost at hemp, cotton, recycled etc.
I’m totally willing to learn, read, and take time to know it well…just aim me in the direction would you dear goddesses of knitting? :notworthy:
Thank you so much in advance!
