We used to buy yarn not by the label but by how it would fill the plastic canvas area and what colour it was. Man, I had nearly forgotten about those days! We made my daughter and step daughter tons and tons of Barbie furniture / accessories and houses back then! My husband made his sons a farm set and a Thomas the Tank Engine and Nintendo Cube piggy bank from plastic canvas that he designed himself. Sometimes the cotton was the perfect thickness and colour!
Because of the many different ways we used to use yarn we have tons and tons of it around the house in the weirdest places!
