I ordered a large yarn order and it arrived today! I like to work with cotton yarn in a lighter weight, but not in the crochet cotton weight. This is the type of yarn I use for pot holders, some baby clothes, wash cloths or dish cloths. I like to use bright colors so brands without a bright pretty cotton candy pink are not contenders. I also do not like yarn to split when knitting or crocheting with it. If there are several plies twisted together and one strand does not get picked up with the needle or hook, there will be a stray strand poking out of my work. The yarn is not as strong when it is missing a stray strand. I have been using Catania Yarn. They have the best pink, even though they call it orchard. LOL
Do you remember a few years ago I blogged about a pair of tennis shoes on a stump in the back yard of a house that neighbors my place of employment. This same pair of tennis shoes is still there on the stump in the back yard. When the lawn is mowed, they mow around the shoes. What would be the purpose? I guess they would work well as bird feeders.
