      A Girl and her Needle: Soften Scratchy Yarn - this is a great idea. I love the softer yarns but when you are working (crochet is my job) it gets too expensive to use.

      A Girl and her Needle: Soften Scratchy Yarn, I have a hard time working with the texture of the cheaper acrylic yarn, maybe this will help....

      Soften scratchy acrylic yarn before you crochet! Have to try this once to see if it really works. Have to say Red Heart is more scratchy than I remember...just saying.

    To straighten yarn that has been previously knit/crocheted. A kettle with hot water to just below the spout. Pass the yarn through the lid, and up through the spout, slowly pulling it through so the steam unkinks the yarn. For real?? Definitely doing this.

    What a cool and cheap idea

    Such a clever technique!! No yarn to cut and weave in every two rows!!! sweet crochet!!*** I'm guessing you carry the bobble yarn along the top of the row you're crocheting and crochet over it and just let the bobbles peek out where ever they are. Pretty brilliant! Adding color and dimension to a piece that's done on 1 stitch. Probably could use sc,dc or tr stitch.
