Unger: "Unger Yarn Balls: Roll the Skein into a ball before using to keep tangles out of yarn. This will put Stress on the yarn and could take the bounce out of the yarn if left too long in a yarn ball.
Unger Cones for Yarn: Weavers and Machine knitters love these. They are a great way to get a lot of yardage in one space."

Unget yarns knit up beautifully. Their yarns where well and wash beautifully.

Crochet World

Crochet World: "Crochet began turning up in Europe in the early 1800s and was given a tremendous boost by Mlle. Riego de la Branchardiere, who was best known for her ability to take old-style needle and bobbin lace designs and turn them into crochet patterns that could easily be duplicated. She published many pattern books so that millions of women could begin to copy her designs. Mlle. Riego also claimed to have invented 'lace-like' crochet, today called Irish crochet."

A new crochet pattern for scarfs is always intereting. It is endless the combination of yarns and patterns. Friends look forward to my crocheted and knitted scarfs for special occasions.
