    Recommendations please!

    I want to crochet mats to go in the cupboard underneath the chip pan (i use lard in this) and oil bottles bc I'm sick of the oil getting everywhere.

    Is nylon yarn a good choice for this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated 🥰

    Pattern suggestions request for Darn Good Yarns Silk Roving Worsted Weight in "Phenomena"

    I scored 24 cakes of Darn Good Yarns Silk Roving in the colorway "Phenomena".

    1800 yards of worsted-weight silk roving in 1 colorway, \"Phenomena\"

    I would love some suggestions (knit or crochet) for patterns that would work with this colorway. There's a lot of variation in the colorway and it's a very "busy" yarn, so I am leaning toward Frankie Browns' Ten-Stitch Twist blanket, but I'm just not sure *silk* is a good choice for a blanket.

    yarn hunt

    I have been trying to find the wool that Knitcrate used to sell. I was hoping to just buy it from the manufacture but I cannot find them. Does anyone know if they went by a different name? or where to buy them? (Audine, Vidalana, Uru).

    Thanks for you help

    thoughts on yarn made from thread?

    I've been seeing creators make yarn from multiple spools of thread. I'm thinking of trying this particularly for cotton yarn since I haven't seen weight 1-2 cotton in the big box US stores.

    Has anyone else tried this, what was the process like, and where do you source your thread? Thanks!

    Yarn Hunt

    Does anyone know what the name of the colorway of this skein is? It’s apart of the Caron Cakes line. I can find no evidence it ever existed other than I once bought 2 skeins. Any help is appreciated, I really want to finish my project lol

    Advice for buying yarn online??

    I'll be moving this fall to start attending college, and I just finished touring the campus I'll be at. It's about 5 hours from my home and therefore my usual yarn shops, and there are no locally owned yarn shops near the campus at all. The closest craft supply stores are the big chains, which are about an hours walk away from the dorms I'd be staying at.

    When I yarn shop, I highly highly prefer going in person - colors don't always match pictures and it's nice to feel the textures, weights and softness of yarn I'm considering. I also like to support small yarn dyers, but they tend to be more expensive so I feel like ordering from them without seeing the yarn in person is a little too risky for my taste.

    I was just wondering if anyone had some advice for this? I don't know how much time I'll really have to knit or crochet so maybe I'll be able to get by with just stocking up when I come home for breaks, but I still want to have options.

    Yarn art jeans

    If a blend is 55% cotton, 45% acrylic, will it have many of the negative qualities of acrylic yarn? I have a hard time finding cotton yarn for crocheted garments that is both affordable and in colors I like (all cotton sport weight yarns seem to be in pastels! Which is fine but not for me). Do you guys think a light/ lacy cardigan made with the brand in the title would be comfortable and relatively durable?

    Can I get some advice on my yarn bowls?

    I designed those for 3d printing. Initially thought to leave the crack at the front to thread the yarn but it would come out too easily. So I added that little rotating tube to hold it in place, but i'm wondering if that is making it more complicated then it should be.

    Edit: link to a locking mechanism in action imgur

    Please ignore nsfw warning, I have no idea why it's classed as such.

    What are we making with our red heart all in one granny square yarn?

    I got a skein as a gift from a friend and I have no idea what to make with them. I didn't enjoy the yarn as much as I'd hoped but I'm also not opposed to getting more skeins if it means whatever i make comes out nice. If you've used this yarn to make something please share because i need ideas as my hyperfixation dwindles. Something giftable is a plus since i typically give away my makes.

    WHAT'S THE BEST YARN FOR BEGINNERS?

    I'm not a beginner in crochet, but I struggled using acrylic yarns. But, I wanna know what do u think is the best for beginners if I start a business crochet kit. Like the one that doesn't tangle a lot.

    TY!!

    Looking for a yarn that resembles TV static

    I’m planning on working on a big piece with a TV but I can’t find the right yarn for the screen, maybe someone here has any suggestions? :(

    I’m looking for medium weight, hopefully mostly a light color and not too busy since there will also be text in black

    Is Premier Yarn XL same as Michael’s Chenille Home? (Both size 7 but want to hear from experience)

    I recently bid adiue to Bernat blanket yarn due to the inconsistency. I know no yarn is perfect but the Bernat extra is just too plush so I’m trying size 7 with Michael’s/Premier.

    Found some at Michaels and loved it. About to make a big order and torn between if premier yarn is better?

    Discontinued yarn??? Capri Tencel yarn by Loops & Threads

    I've been looking for the yarn in the title online and in store at Michaels in Canada (particularly the cream colour). It's my favourite yarn and I'm crocheting a dress out of the skeins I have left but I might have to play yarn chicken which is never fun. Is the yarn discontinued? I can't seem to find it anywhere :(
