Here’s something that keeps me up at night: what if a reader is new to MDK and hasn’t read all of Jillian Moreno‘s mind-blowing posts about yarn? That would be terrible! We must rectify!
Our faces when we read one of Jillian’s pieces.
We call Jillian the Yarn Detective. She doesn’t wear a battered trench coat (most days), but she does usually have “just one more question” before she is done with a swatch. The yarn thinks it’s gotten away with it, but that last question brings it to its knees, and it gives up its secrets.
Each of these pieces taught me something that I didn’t know about the nature and quality of yarn—I didn’t even know what I didn’t know!
I suggest you hunker down with a piece of knitting that involves a yarn you really like, and take a little time to read each of these posts. You’ll discover something about that yarn in your hands that you didn’t know. And you’ll carry that knowledge with you the next time you’re choosing yarn for your next project.
