I don't know what that means. - Brennan

OK, so I just got the pattern for Rogue from Girl from Auntie. It's gorgeous. I can't wait to knit it. But here's the thing: I am the queen of cheapo acrylic yarn, but considering the time and effort I'm sure this is going to take, and how pretty I want the finished product to be, I thought I might upgrade a bit. But I have some extenuating factors:

1. Wool makes me itch like a madwoman. Therefore, wool is out of the question (even wool blends are more than I can really handle).
2. If it's not machine washable, it won't get worn, because I will dread hand washing it or taking it to the cleaners. Which sort of defeats the purpose.

(Are you seeing now why acrylic is my friend?)

So: anyone know of a relatively inexpensive, non-wool, machine washable worsted yarn? In kind of a mossy green? (Not asking much am I? Wink ) I was thinking maybe Shine Worsted from KnitPicks, but I'm not overly attached to that option.

Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This is why I suggested attack dogs, but no, my mother wanted an alpaca.- Logan, Veronica Mars

Caron Simply Soft is a nice acrylic yarn to work with.
