How do you choose a yarn?
This is probably a very basic question but how do you choose a yarn for cables like the Irish hiking scarf. How do you know if what you are looking at will make the cables pop? I went to the lys and came home because I couldn't decide. I am making this for a very special birthday present for my so and I want to do it right.
Thanks
