What is YRM: I honestly believe there are good things and bad things about every type of yarn, no matter how much you save or how much you break the bank.
This is for the lay-knitter, not professionals. This is for people like me who might not necessarily be fiber experts despite being a crocheter or knitter for a long time, but need an honest opinion about yarn before they dive into a project with it.
The yarn: Lily Sugar'n Cream Crafter's Cotton Ombres
The project: Surplice pattern #2557 from Bear Brand Baby Knits volume 352
What I liked: Good stitch definition. I provided a photo of the crocheted portion of the skein (given to me like that) to give you an idea with knit and crochet. Being machine washable is always a good thing.
What I didn't like: It's a bit rough and stiff. This was surprising to me. However, in garter stitch it knit up very stretchy. I'm actually concerned about this since I have a bad feeling it will stretch out of shape after washing. And then the green yarn I used will look terrible
Affordability: I was gifted this yarn. But it is available in stores like JoAnn Fabric and others for $2.49/skein.
Rating: I do love the fact that this yarn is so affordable. I'm sure it could be used for a multitude of projects although it didn't impress me much.
