5 crochet problems

Problems, problems, problems – which one of these crochet problems plagues you?

5 problems crocheters have: read more at LoveCrochet

1. Not enough yarn

There’s nothing worse than running out of yarn when you’re close to the end of a project. Yikes! The only thing you can do is get as far as you can, and order a bit more if you must. It’s definitely frustrating, and it can really knock you off of your crochet horse!

2. Splitty yarn

Splitty yarn is annoying to work with and makes even simple projects a major hassle. To avoid splitty yarn, look for a yarn that has a high twist – it prevents splits from happening.

3. Losing your hooks

Is it in the couch? Under the couch? At the bottom of my bag? Wherever it is, it entered some kind of space-time continuum and I’ll never find it again.

4. Losing your back up hooks

If you lose hooks constantly, and they only resurface once you’ve bought a new one, then maybe some sort of supernatural being is to blame. I hear nargles like to crochet, too!

5. Not enough space for your yarn stash

crochet problems: not enough space

It’s a problem with all crafters far and wide: not enough space for the yarn stash. Before you know it, you’re sleeping on the floor in your kitchen because every other area is filled with yarn. Don’t worry – you can just move into a bigger space!

    Have a Master’s degree in every one of said problems!, I have had my cats steal my skein of yarn and start running off with them, as I’m crocheting ! Also, had one cat that loved to chew through the yarn as she sat, quietly purring snuggled next to me, and then suddenly I’m sitting with a wet, chewed off end in my hand as she is contently (and looking innocent) chewing on the other end!

      Jennifer I think our cats are relates! I have one fella who does the exact same, sneaks off with the ball, and another who has a sneaky nibble. I’ve also caught her sitting on and in my project baskets.
