Consider the humble cotton dishrag. You probably have a few around your house right now. Jazz it up with some fancy yarn and knit it bigger, and before you know it you have a lovely triangular shoulder wrap.
Yarn arts have been a part of my life since my mom taught me to knit when I was 10. My house is full of sweaters, mittens, dish towels, dolls, bath mats, and other items I've knitted or crocheted. Loved ones stay warm with my hand-knitted socks, gloves, hats, and scarves. Many of them are my own designs. I love sharing my creations with other yarn artists.
