WWW: Bringing Warmth, Yarn Subs and 10 Facts About Sweaters
We’ve just discovered yarnsub.com, a rather clever website dedicated to helping you find substitutions for yarns for your projects. There’s good info on different types of specific yarns, but also more generally the whys and wherefores of yarn substitution. And there’s a helpful discussion of my favourite topic: swatching!
Note that it’s a work in progress, so there are limitations on the substitutions that can be suggested, but they’re working on expanding the database further.
I do rather enjoy this time of year, and newspaper editors’ attempts to find light-hearted and seasonal filler items… Courtesy of the Chicago Tribute, “10 things you might not know about sweaters”. Amongst ‘gems’ like “A cardigan worn by a man is sometimes called a mandigan”, there are actually some fun and interesting facts!
