“If I were yarn” what kind would I be?  I would be a superwash merino, likely in fingering size.  Merino is my favourite wool.  It is so soft.  Everyone in my family can wear it and most of them don’t know even know it’s wool!  I would want to be superwash that way people wouldn’t be afraid to knit with me.  They could toss me in the wash (within reason) without ruining me.

They didn’t ask what colour I would want to be but I will tell you any way.  I would want to be a gorgeous hand paint, like I often buy from Knit Picks.  I’d like to be fingering size because that’s my favourite for knitting.  It’s so versatile, makes socks, make a sweater, or make a gorgeous shawl all with this same ball of wool.
