A few months ago someone in a Facebook group accused me of not having a good understanding of singles yarns and that I obviously hated them when I gave her advice that was contrary to what she was thinking. I think she wanted to argue but I had to laugh and click away. I didn’t want to have a classic Facebook pissing match. Anyone that knows me knows I love singles yarns and have a pretty darn good knowledge of them. I even teach a whole class all about them. Actually now it’s more than I just have a Singles Yarns class on my teaching roster;
I teach the Craftsy class in Singles Yarns.
That’s right! You heard it here first! That’s the class I went to Colorado to teach. That’s the class that will be going live in a couple of weeks. woohoo!!!!
For those not in the know, singles are yarns that are not plied. They are a stand alone single. If you’re a knitter/crocheter that doesn’t spin yet, think of Malabrigo or Noro yarns. If you don’t do anything in the fiber arts singles yarns look like:
and like this:
But not just limited to those, in the class we did some fancier ones like:
And more. More.
I also talked about the things they make but this post could get really long and picture heavy so I’ll save that for another one. You know I’m going to keep talking about this for a couple of weeks, right? I love this type of yarn and I’m so glad Craftsy chose this class for me to teach. I mean, I loved the Foundations class that I taught (Pssst that’s a discounted link if you want it) but there is something even more special about the Standalone Singles. Singles have a special place in my little black heart.
Stay tuned. I'll have more pics of projects, yarns, and stuff from the Craftsy studio.
