Corona Note 1

Dear friends, during this coronavirus pandemic I have decided to teach myself how to work with lightweight yarn and luckily I was gifted some several months back and it is actually a discontinued product which sucks for me in the long run because I actually like this lightweight yarn that I was working with but thankfully I have an app that Can suggest similar product so that is going to be beneficial in the future endeavors when I want to work with lightweight yarn. I did not make anything very interesting with the lightweight yarn, I just did a swatch so I got the hang of things. Right now as I’m dictating this entry, I am watching TV having coffee and snuggling with my dogs. The veterinarians have said that during The staycation that humans need to limit their interaction with their pets-not happening because they are my emotional support critters and I could not do five minutes without them. I continue to see dramatic posts from random people but I also see the factual information that we need to learn and understand about the disease/Virus. As I posted on Facebook, I have decided to start doing your own reviews because there’s yarn I love and there’s yarn I just hate not because of the brand or the parent company it is because of the texture. I have recently organized my stash with the help of my mom and have pretty much everything properly placed. I have everything on display and in almost a show room fashion. I have a lot of cotton and I have a lot of acrylics and I have always worked best with the medium yarn but recently I decided to teach myself how to work with a lightweight yarn. Which I mentioned up above. Like I said the yarn has been discontinued but I definitely plan on continuing to teach myself I think I’m going to save the remainder of the unused yarn because if I end up purchasing some on my own, I will need to know what I like because this crafter has a key brain/goldfish memory. I am currently working on two different projects one on A larger needle and one on the size 6 circular that I recently heart yarn acquired which I have been debating whether or not to purchase the interchangeable circular pack or if I should buy them individually which makes sense economically and which ones will I use more. I have worked with different needles different yarns but before I purchased more of these particular needles that I just got I want to make sure that all the yards I have that I like to work will work with this particular needle. This needle is not new on the market but it is new to me and I’m excited because they have a built in cooler I’ve built in gauge and you can tell how large your project is when it’s on the needle. So since I worked on this entry, I tore out the chocolate cherry scarf because I want to reuse that yarn in a new project which I started this morning. A 90 stitch scrap yarn blanket wrap. I have a shit load of red heart yarn That I thought I would be used to make scarves because I once thought that I would become a scarf factory of sorts but that did not happen. I have had a pretty good day even though it is rainy and cold with a repeat on tap for tomorrow. March has come in like a lamb and is definitely going to go out like a fucking lion. Also I would like to make a note that this entire coronavirus thing has me thinking about where did it really come from who begin with it who is responsible who’s lying and who’s telling the truth-do I trust . Government government? No not really-am I registered Republican-yes I am but I’m an independent thinker I vote for the purpose not politician-do I like our UGGs for 2020 in the Democratic category absolutely fucking not-do I think Mr. Donald Trump is better in the White House then Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders absolutely but do I agree with everything Mr. Donald Trump says absolutely not. And I am spending today just like every other day with my dogs who there’s a report out that says that we should not be with our animals during this coronavirus pandemic but the government doesn’t understand fully that those of us with mental health issues depend on our animals and our animals depend on us. These animals that we all loved ones are absolutely living for the coronavirus staycation because they get their parents 24/7.

Hobby Lobby Review Part 2

Dear crafters, earlier I posted a short review on the #HobbyLobby #SugarWheel yarn cakes and how I wasn’t necessarily impressed nor will be purchasing them again. Because of another color block, I decided to start another scarf with a skein of #ILoveThisYarn, while I don’t necessarily love it, it’s much nicer to work vs the sugar wheel. I am currently working a 25 stitch/needle size 8 scarf in Cobblestonia. Surprisingly I have recycled a box to use as a yarn drum/bowl. So today I am working on two different HobbyLobby projects. One of which I like more than the other because of the rough and knotty texture. I was excited about purchasing a product from Hobby Lobby but I am not sure if I am going to be doing it again. Anyway, I am almost finished with the sugar wheel. Anyway, I have to say that the texture of ” I love this yarn ” is much better than the ”sugar wheel”. I’ll be reporting on the Lion Brand yarns I just purchased in the near future.

@hobbylobby #Sugarwheel Review

Dear fellow crafters, I never thought I would be writing a negative review of any yarn that I purchased but the time come- I was completely excited to work with Hobby Lobby yarn but I am rather dissatisfied and disappointed with the SugarWheel. Not only is it expensive but it is rough texture and in less than 30 minutes of knitting, I had two major knots. I still have two cakes left which I will use but I don’t have any intention of buying more at this moment.
