Blue Ribbon Yarns

I’m back from travels and vacations and settling in for a little Fall dyeing and knitting. While I was judging yarns at the San Mateo County Fair someone asked me what my favorite yarn was and why.

The reason I like the yarns I do have to do with the quality of the fibers as well as the way the yarn feels and handles. I like quality. If I’m going to spend time choosing colors, dyeing yarns and knitting or weaving with them I want the experience to be enjoyable as well as have the finished product look fabulous and reflect the time and effort I put into it. There is nothing more disappointing than to have a final garment pill or look sloppy because the yarns didn’t hold up!

In my next few posts I’ll showcase my favorites. Its so nice to be home again!

    That sure is a cute black dog. Do you make yarn out of her fur?
