Unhappy with your spinning or knitting? It’s not you; it’s your yarn!
In this talk Jillian Moreno will expose the inner workings of yarn construction and how it affects your knitting.
She will walk through the steps of how a yarn is built, from fiber, to draft, to ply, and show you exactly why you might be unhappy with a yarn or knitting project.
Spinners will see how each intentional choice in spinning results in the exact yarn perfect for whatever knitting project you have in mind. Knitters will learn how a little insider knowledge of yarn construction makes substituting yarn easier, and leads to happier knitting.
