Yarn Alive finally commenced today. Due to Japanese holidays this month, we have not had a chance to meet until today – but the wait was worth it!
Today’s class was all about “Ruffle” yarn and making fun, crazy, twirly, ruffle scarves out of it. The yarn is 100% acrylic with a net type of material. Each yarn company that sells this kind of yarn calls it a different thing, but basically it is called “ruffle yarn”.
