bowtiesandlions said: I usually do amigurumi, and my favorite yarn to use is Vanna's Choice from Lion Brand. It comes in many vibrant colors, and it is soft enough, but not TOO soft. When crocheting in the round, it is sturdy and holds it's own, but you should use a smaller hook then the one recommended on the skein so that when you stuff the piece the stitches are not so wide apart. I usually get my yarn at Jo Ann Fabrics, where they have a bug selection of different types and brands of yarn. Hope this helps!
Hmm, I don’t think I’ve tried Vanna’s before. I’ll have to check it out next time I’m at JoAnn’s. Thanks for the info!
I have, in the past, been a big fan of Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn. But now I can’t in good conscience continue to support them. So what do you folks use? I’d really like to find something similar to I Love This Yarn but I could stand to experiment a bit. I’m also wanting to play around with some wool yarn if anyone has recs for those.
