Yarn Reviews

I sometimes go back and forth on what I love more crochet or yarn and I guess there would be no crochet if there was no yarn so it may be why I love all the yarn. For business purposes I do use a lot of the yarn that is massed produce or can be found at the major craft stores like Michaels, JoAnn’s, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby and Wal-mart but trust me I can definitely have some yarn snob moments where I only want the luxurious stuff that can only be found at the exclusive yarn shops you know that hand dyed hand spun yarn goodness.

A lot of my yarn reviews are on the larger brands but I will also be doing some more reviews on that luxurious goodness as well as soon as I find a project worth all its wool glory. I do most of my yarn reviews on YouTube so I have embedded the videos for my most recent ones for you to watch and if you have particular yarn you would like me to review just let me know!
