Almost two years ago, when my husband and I just moved into our new house, I decided to start my first crocheted throw. I wanted one that will match our new couch in our new living room. A lot of new things going on. I was still fairly new to crochet and wasn't very yarn savvy. So I bought some yarn that would match and was soft enough to want to use. I didn't just want something to look at. I bought the yarn at Joann's and I do not remember the brand, but it was something like this.
I'm not really sure what I would say my favorite yarn is. I use acrylic yarn the most, maybe because it's cheap or maybe because there are so many colors, or maybe I'm still not that yarn savvy. If I had to pick a brand it would most likely be "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby. I'm really diggin their "I Love This Cotton" too, but I'll talk about the acrylic for now.
If you've read my previous posts, you know that I'm working on a blanket. This is the yarn that I am using. The color is white sparkle. It's pretty soft and it has a thin silver ribbon spun in it to give it some bling. This yarn is great to work with, not at all as frustrating as boucle.
