If you love doilies, then you might enjoy crochet thread. If you love clothes, you might enjoy a light weight yarn. Or perhaps your favorite yarn weight is determined by what is readily available for purchase near you. Lots of craft stores stock a lot of medium worsted weight yarn.

    I use worsted weight yarn a lot just because it’s what I used when I first learned to crochet and it’s everywhere in all the stores.

    I like crochet thread, sock yarn, sport yarn, DK, and sometimes worsted, My hands can’t handle bigger than size 8 knitting needles.

    Love me some teeny tiny crochet thread. Gotta take advantage of my eyes and hands while they’re still young enough.
