I believe we can create beautiful functional things with whatever materials & tools we have access to.
I made this hat last fall with Caron Simply Soft yarn and Sarah Stavsky’s ‘Sarah’s Cabled Hat’ pattern.
I’ve tried to be a yarn snob now that I can actually afford & have access to more luxurious yarns but it hasn’t worked. I still drool over the cheap mass produced fibers in my local Walmart just like I do at a posh knitting shop. For most of my life all I had access to was cheap yarn and tools generously given to me or found dirt cheap at yard sales.
I love it all. It’s all gorgeous to work with and wear and use. It all makes me feel like a sexy creative goddess.
