I wanted to share with you one of my favorite designers, Becky Goldsmith. She has a great tutorial breaking down the confusion as to what kind of threads work best with wool. This is something I have struggled with in my process of learning wool applique. There are a variety of threads available and knowing which ones to try first can be overwhelming. Reading about her experience and seeing her examples was very helpful.
I’ve crocheted for over 36yrs. I am self taught. I learned from watching my mom when I was very young. When ever she would sit to crochet, I would sit on the floor next to her chair and watch. When I was in the 5th grade she gave me one of her size J hooks and some yarn. I sat done with a book and began to learn. My first project was a granny square afghan for my Grandma.
