[Editor's Note: When it comes to yarn letters – no pain no gain. What? You didn’t know crafting sometimes hurt. Well wait until you start wrapping wooden letters in yarn and your fingertips are burnt to a crafty little crisp. Cranny + B has posted a great tutorial about creating your own set of yarn wrapped letters. They may hurt like heck to make, but the end result is so cute they are worth it. Spell out an entire word, make a set of initials or perhaps choose just one special letter. For someone who does not knit or do much crochet I am always looking for projects that enable me to play with all the beautiful colors of yarn out there. - Jen]
Sarah from Cranny + b was very generous with her tips and tricks in the tutorial: "Smaller dabs of hot glue are better, not only for your fingers, but for the all-over look of the letter. You will notice that small dabs of glue will be needed here and there, not just on the starting and ending points."
