Recently I have been focused on building content on my YouTube channel and IGTV.
In this week’s video, I go over all of the the yarn I bought in the month of June.
Life has been a little topsy turvy these last few months for me. Thus, the moment I started Summer Break, I got a little crazy with buying all the yarn I’ve wanted to design with since January.
First in my haul is the Big Twist Textile yarn. I’m thinking about designing a lunch bag, as school is coming back too fast for my comfort. (Teacher in the summer probs) You can find it from JoAnn’s here!
At the beginning of June, I went through a macrame stage, when I bought a lot of cord. I have yet had to use any of the cord, but it still makes me happy to have. I bought Yarnspriations Bernat Macrame and some samples from A Little Knottie on Etsy!
My next phase was cotton! During the summer I am always more inspired to work with cotton over acrylic yarn. I bought Dishie from We Crochet, which now has to be my absolute favorite cotton yarn. It’s not too stiff, like a lot of cotton yarn. It also doesn’t seem like it will pill with use either. Here is my next design that uses Dishie yarn.
Albeit this yarn wasn’t cotton, I did use it to make a summer pattern. Love Craft’s Stylecraft Special DK acrylic yarn for my upcoming Blue Gingham Table Runner pattern. I talk about this extremely affordable yarn that never seems to stop. I seriously used only 1 skein of each color for the table runner. I even had yarn left over. The yarn isn’t the softest, but was perfect for a practical reason. You can find this yarn here.
Another Yarnspirations yarn I’ve used during June is Bernat’s Softee yarn. It’s almost a tube yarn versus ply yarn. It’s cool to the touch super lightweight, as I’ve been working on maaaaaaybeeeee my first garment pattern. We’ll see! Find the yarn here!
I got some Truboo yarn as an impulse buy at JoAnn’s one rainy day. I had never really been interested in the yarn before, even though it’s been out for year. Seeing it in person made me think of scrunchies, which is on my “Patterns To Design” list. Buy it here!
In a purchase I made directly from Lion Brand, I also bought Re-Tweed yarn, Heartland yarn, and a couple HUE + Me skeins.
With the Re-Tweed I hope to make a pencil pouch/hook pouch. Buy it here.
As for the others, I honestly just bought them because I thought they were beautiful. I bought the Heartland yarn in a new color, Petrified Forest. I swear, the longer I look at it, the less certain I am of it’s color. In some light, it looks green or blue. Sometimes it looks gray. Regardless, I think it would make a beautiful giant scarf or pocket shawl. Find it here.
And of course Hue + Me by Two of Wands is the prettiest collection of colors I’ve ever seen.
I must admit that perhaps I went a little overboard this month on buying yarn, even more so than I usually do.
