Trying Cotton Yarn

Remember when I went to the craft shop in Indonesia? Yes, I ended up home with a couple of purple cotton yarn. I think it is either local yarn, or made in China — judging from its label. Anyway…

Since the yarn weight is quite light, I am thinking of making a lacy curtain or tablecloth. I found this table cloth pattern from ravelry and quite like it. I think it would make a good curtain too — all I need to do is change the amount of squares to resize the end result.

After working a while with this yarn I found that the yarn doesn’t slide as nicely as the usual yarn I used. I am not sure if it is because of the material of the yarn or because of the quality of the yarn itself. I have heard that cotton yarn works differently, but I also realised that this yarn I just bought has an inferior quality compared to the usual yarn I have.

However, I am not complaining. It is still okay to use, and it is incredibly cheap. Although I am not going to use it to make something that I am going to wear, it will still works for decoration or even light blanket… Hm… Blanket, huh?

Maybe after this project is done?

    Just wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog.
    Also, if you don’t love the yarn then I would definitely stick the curtains or tablecloth because they’re things you wouldn’t put on your skin.

    I love the pattern you shared, if I ever make a tablecloth I’ll have to consider it! Whatever you decide to make I hope you love it in the end.

    • Hi Jocelyn πŸ™‚ Thank you… The yarn is slightly too rough for my liking, I will stick to curtains or tablecloth πŸ™‚ The pattern is very pretty, but I think it will take longer than I thought it would be πŸ˜€
