Disappointing News

I received notice that I did not pass the Masters of Crochet Techniques and Stitches Program.  I reviewed the feedback and noticed that my choice of yarn played a big role in not passing.  I used some soft yarn (Caron Simply Soft) which in retrospect was not a good choice.  The stitch definition is just not there.

I purchased some Paton's Wool yarn, and I'm  reworking the swatches which look much better.  This was a lesson learned the hard way.  The devil is in the details when it comes to this type of program. 

Just a word to the wise for others considering this program. It takes months to get a reviewer, and now I have to start the whole process again.


  1. Bummer! What about people who don't have the funds to buy expensive yarns?

  2. I don't think you need to buy expensive yarn, just avoid soft yarns like Caron Simply Soft and cotton yarns like Peaches and Cream

    I purchased some Paton's Wool yarn and that seems to be working up pretty well. The stitch definition is much better.
