So I’m just about finished with most of my current projects (long-term blanket, baby blanket and a scarf) and I was making vague plans for the next project. I picked up a VOGUEknitting Crochet magazine and I’m thinking of trying some of the clothing patterns inside. I’ve never made clothing beyond hats and scarves so it will be a whole new experience. Exciting!
Most of the patterns call for a lighter yarn weight, usually 0-2 (which would be lace, super fine and/or fine). Usually I purchase my yarn from the selection at Michael’s, Joann’s or Meijer (for those of you not in the Great Lakes Area – it’s like Walmart). Last time I looked for light weight yarn the selection was pretty sparse. For clothing I would really like to find some semi-nice yarn preferably in cotton.
Any suggestions on where to look for a better selection of yarn? Any online sources have good prices/good yarn?
Thanks in advance for the advice!! I’ll post pictures of my finished products soon, very soon, hopefully!
