i'm really not a yarn snob

on the crochet wagon (again)


i am crocheting when i should be doing other things .... but, all i want to do right now is crochet squares from this book with this yarn.

but, it's bedtime, and square #6 will have to wait until tomorrow ....

Red Heart!?!? Say it isn't so. I'm all for cheap-o yarn but doesn't that stuff hurt your hands?

you know, i've never knitted with red heart before, only crocheted. and, it doesn't hurt my hands at all ... unlike cotton, which is murder.
i'm also steam blocking my squares, and it softens them up and makes them drape.
so, yes, i am one of those people who acually likes red heart :)

I admit, I have knit with red heart, but only in the beginning, and I didn't enjoy it or anything. :P

Those are truly stunning squares though, I love the colors!
