Helpful Hint of the Week
Do you find your hands snagging on fine, fuzzy, or silky yarns? The solution is in the kitchen! Pour a small amount (½ tsp-ish) of sugar in your hand, then enough oil to cover it (olive oil works great) to moisten all the sugar. Rub this sugar/oil scrub around your hands, especially the rough spots. Wash off with a gentle hand soap. Moisturizes and exfoliates and prevents snags on soft fibers!
