Happy Bank Holiday weekend everyone in the UK, hope you all have lovely things planned?
So, black cotton then, that’s nice to work with isn’t it? NOT!!!
On the back of completing mums runner the other weekend I decided I needed some new place mats, so off I went to my local yarn store in search of some cotton yarn to match my table and chairs which happen to be black, all my cupboards are white so do I have white which will get dirty after every use, NO. Black it was then, they didn’t have any so I had to order some from Amazon, Lion Brand, never used this before.
I started in rounds as I wanted circle one’s this time, Dam that stuff is hard to work with, especially in black. Safe to say I only made 2 placemats and 2 coasters LOL.
It felt so tough and unforgiving to work with, is all cotton like this or is the brand I chose? I always associate cotton with being soft.
I think prefer working with acrylic to cotton and I don’t seem to use that often either.
Anyone out there use cotton a lot, if so which brand would you recommend and what do you make with it?
Anyway have a lovely weekend everyone. I’m sure you’ll hear from me again at some point over the bank holiday.
