30 Days of Crocheting Challenge – Day 29

Day 29: Do you have any tips, or things that you’ve learned from crochet?

  • Crochet Is Art, but don’t be scared, it is very friendly! Have fun!
  • Yarn people are awesome! Go mingle! Have fun!
  • Do not forget to eat, sleep, shower and talk to people. Also, open your hands often. You have to let go of the yarn and hook, yes, and that hurts, but it’s important.
  • Did I mention? HAVE FUN!

Day 27: How do you acquire most of yarn? Online retailers, local yarn shops, swaps, or large chain craft stores? What’s your favourite?

I buy at local yarn shops. The ones “around the corner”, their owners are not precisely the most amiable people on earth, so I mostly buy at this big store, where they have a ridiculously small selection but at least it is all at my hands (I can touch it all!!) and they give me all the time in the world. (Picture me juggling 5 different skeins back and forth checking if the colours go well together…)
