I agree to make some pattern decisions, before yarn choices. You will be much happier if your yarn has a purpose.
I'm worried that it will shrink up, and all my work will be ruined.
That's the ONLY reason I don't like wool.
It seems scary. I taught a felting class, and just freaked out, thinking about my relatives throwing the stuff I had knittted them, in the dryer. So, I ONLY use yarn that won't shrink.
Can you help me get over my fear?
