I love yarn.
It’s an addiction. Every single store I go into, in every new city, I’m searching for their yarn section. From hardware stores to big box to local yarn shops…I need all the yarn. All of it.
A few months back, this new yarn started making the rounds in all my fav stops.
Yup, Loop Yarn.
But, what do you do with it? I’m and knitter and crocheter already so, does this even apply to me? Why would I waste my time with that?
So. Many. Questions.
I veered away from the loop yarn for ages, just thinking it was a passing fad. Turns out? It’s not! Loop yarn is here to stay and the yarnies love it!
Last week, I decided I needed to try out some of that loop yarn. Why not?
Let me tell you…if it wasn’t the most frustrating 10 minutes of my crafty life.
Then, my designer brain went to work and I had a thought, “What if I crocheted it?”
Well, here’s how the actual conversation went:
“I’m done. I can’t do this.”
“Just crochet with it.”
“Wait. Crochet with it! That’s genius! Use the hook to…hook the loops! Omg! Yes!”
I spent the next four hours crocheting the loop yarn and loving the results! I had my Afghan a quarter of the way finished in just that time! How cool is that?
Anyway, want to learn to crochet loop yarn yourself? Well, I’ve uploaded a quick tutorial video I shot on my front porch here in North Carolina. It was a gorgeous day so I thought, why not?
So, what do you think? Are you going to crochet with the loop yarn? Should we have a little Afghan CAL?
