I notice we have a whole subsection for review child-boards. Why not one for yarn? What pills, sheds, fades, breaks, or is full of knots? What drapes, washes well, holds up forever and is a great value? It might even be a good place for reviews of online yarn stores.

This sounds so handy!  I just started teaching myself how to knit and I know very little about yarns and what I should be looking for or what to use for what purpose.

I agree -- right now I'm stashbusting some yarn that I bought online; what showed up in the mail was very different that what I imagined the yarn to be, and so the yarn has been sitting in my closet for over a year.  It would also be great board for people to post their "What should I do with [specific yarn]" questions.

This is a great idea. I just got some stuff off ebay and while rolling it found that most of the balls are 2 or 3 sections knotted together Cry
Makes it kinda hard to work with (I'll have to go find the brand name). And the big Pounds of Love (caron and lion brand) are usually knotted somewhere in the middle.
Not too bad a problem but I kinda wish i had known before i started my work....ended up in the middle of one of my stitches cause i wasn't paying attention Cry.

Great idea. I often scour the forums for feedback on yarns before starting a project, and this would speed things up considerably.

I only post compliments that I really and truly mean.

A yarn board would be great!  I live in Dayton, Ohio and our LYS are small and inconvenient.  I almost always order off the net, and it is stressful!  I have some horribly ugly 100% silk yarn that has been taking up space in my cabinate for ever.
