OMG Meme-ing on a craft blog, whatever will they think of next

My darling nett’s new blog is super pretty, but the first thing i found was a meme.

which of course i have to do.

from Nett: “Whilst clicking about on Ravelry, I came across a cute Popular Yarns Meme, which was supposedly started onFeather & Fan, but the original link is now gone, the original was for the top 50 yarns, but its SO HARD to keep that kind of list up to date, so I’ve snipped it to the top 25… ;) ”

And I’ve made it 30

Out of the top 50 30 yarns on Ravelry (by number of projects):
Bold the ones you’ve used and would use again,
Cross out the ones you’ve used and would not use again,
and italicize the ones you’ve never tried, but would like to.
Add comments as desired, and tag 5 knitters/crocheters if desired…

I promised a photo though, so here’s a collage of projects using the yarns above...

  1. Blue Moon Fibre Arts Socks that Rock Lightweight <– I still need to try this! And I nearly bought a tonne of Koigu PPPM in a destash recently, and then the realities of my budget prevailed and I decided against it. IDK if I regret it or not! xD

    • i ❤ socks that rock. i haven't tried koigu, but i have knitted with claudia's handpainted, which i was told is the same base yarn, but obs different dyer.
