Thank you Shandeh, for the links for the yarns and the YouTube video link!
I feel more confident now, working with "boutique" type yarns. I loved all the Knit or Knot yarns! I really liked the Jessie. I will try a project with one of them.
The tutorials are very user-friendly and are easy to follow. I appreciate
Btw--in Michigan we say "Ber-nay" -- so it is pronounced "Ber-not"
Can't wait to see your monster! The Satin yarn is lovely.
I've heard a few other people call Bernat "BerNAY". I always raise one eyebrow, and say, "It's BerNAT". They just ignore me. I try to tell them that I KNOW the pronunciation, since I work for the company, but I don't think they hear me. I guess my voice gets lost in the conversation or something.
Several months ago, I was at a local knitting get-together, and one of the ladies said, "Sandy, you remind me of someone." I told her, "well, I'm on the internet a lot....I blog for Bernat yarn." And she said, "OH! OH! You're SHANDEH!!" I just laughed and laughed. Several other people in the group said, "What?" And she just kept pointing at me, saying, "THAT'S SHANDEH from BerNAY!!!"
The funniest thing is that I had been going to that group for almost a year, and no one had ever put together that I was "Shandeh" before.
