21  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Vanna's Choice Yarn. on: August 15, 2007 10:28:50 PM

Its not like its Vicki Howell's stuff which is on average like $4 more than regular soy/bamboo mixes...THAT kind of celebrity endorsement ticks me off a lot more...

Oh goodness goodness...I could not possibly agree with you more. What a genuine load of bullhonkey that is. I mean, at the very least Vanna's yarn is decently priced and she doesn't have advertisements chalking it up to be something totally revolutionizing knitting.

I wish Pat Sajak had a yarn.  I would probably buy it just for the label. 

YES. That needs to happen NOW.

Sure you can! Smiley

I've done it with the method you've described. It worked just fine.

I concur with redwitch on all of the points she made.

I see free knitting magazines to be like a box of chocolates you received from someone for no reason. Even if all the chocolates totally suck for you, it's still cool to know you got such a kind freebee.

I felt some of that Strata stuff at Wal-Mart today. Jeez! It feels worse than Super Saver! What's up with that?  Huh

I do think that particular yarn is too itchy for a baby blanket.

I'm torn about the whole acrylic vs. wool thing, though.  The problem with acrylic is that if it catches on fire, it melts and continues to burn.  That's why they're so strict about kids' pajamas being fire resistant.  Wool won't do that -- it's self-extinguishing, so as soon as the actual flame is taken away, the fire goes out. 

Personally, I'm more paranoid about fire than I am about allergies, so I would probably go for wool.

Sorry to be a downer.   Sad

I was wondering about that too. Maybe a super-soft, machine washable yarn like Knit Picks Swish would be good?

Gah, I checked out my Michaels. They have some of the new solid colors, but none of the new striped ones. Off to peruse the online stores.  Cheesy

I really want to knit lemonade. Everything else though....meh, not quite my cup of tea.

Lordy I love that blanket. I hadn't thought of how fantastically the stitch pattern would do with variegated yarn.

I'm having a complete money guilt issue over doing mine in such an expensive yarn, too. (I went with SWS, but it still isn't doing to great for my teenage budget.)
