1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: how to pick yarn online on: January 17, 2011 01:29:31 PM
If you're new to crochet and amigarumi, I'd say to go by the pattern. I think most call for worsted weight. You could try Vanna's Choice. It works up better than Red Heart in my opinion.
That scarf calls for sock weight yarn and is a knit pattern. Thinner sock weight yarn might be more difficult to learn with that regular worsted weight.

I like the Deborah Norville Chunky Serenity also. Joanns Sensations has a super bulky yarn that is really soft. It's called Sumptuous. REALLY chunky.

There are some brushed acrylic yarns, like Lion Brand Jiffy. You can brush them more for an extra effect. They're not quite as furry as the fun fur types.

Yes, I think tc is right - maybe you didn't cut your yarn or work over the ends of the color changes. If it can be the inside of the glove, then it shouldn't matter too much?
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Washing yarn? on: January 17, 2011 01:16:03 PM
You could try just airing them out. Lay them outside on a nice day or in an open window in the breeze. You may have to wait until spring!
If they're not too bad, I'd wait until you've made something and then wash the item. Yarn tangles and felts so easily.

I try to reorganize often so that I put away yarn that I'm finished with. I usually have current projects in like a decorative basket in my living room so I can work on what I want when I want.
Hooks and needles are in tube-like canisters (like an oatmeal container).
My yarn is usually a mess though since I'm always digging through the bins looking for something. Clear bins are a great idea.
