This year I am taking part in the knitting and crochet blog week :)
The theme for day one is to writes about yarns that did and didn't work for you, so here goes:
The main consistency of my stash is acrylic yarn, which I love (I know everyone doesn't but I do!) the reasons for my love are:
- Its cheap so you can bee experimental and not worry if you get things wrong etc.. whereas with expensive yarn I have to make sure everythings perfect!
- You can get it in a hugggggggggeeeee range of colours
- It's easy to knit with
- And its easy to wash :)
Hayfield bonus DK and Robin double knit are two of my favourite acrylic yarns

Now... yarns I'm not a great fan of....
'Funky fir' and similar.
This is because it can be Very difficult (annoying) to knit/crochet with and also is mainly only useful for scarves etc... (What I mean is its not generally required for many patterns)
However when I see things such as this cutie it makes me think its not all that bad :)
