These Are The Yarns I Like

This is my entry into the third contest over at SITMT, but before I post it, I need to give full credit to Bruce McCulloch of Kids in the Hall fame, for his very obvious inspiration.

These are the yarns, I like, I like

I can’t think of a tenth yarn…
What’s your favourite yarn???


I know that I won't get full points since I didn't list 10 yarns... This was hard to do! Oh - yes - this IS why I'm not a poet. I know my limitations.

You didn't mention KPPPM? Either you haven't knit with this or you didn't like it. I made a pair of fingerless gloves, and I LOVED it. Next time I'm in a store that carries it, I'll buy some more.

And I'm in Love with Araucania. Especially the Chunky Multy. Fun mix of colors.

And what about Dream in Color? I'm working with that now and it's a dream.

But, I'm so not going to try to make a poem. And I've never used Fleece artist, Sea Silk or Cherry Tree Hill so I'll have to add those to my list.

Oh, great post! My favorite yarn changes each time I find a new one!
Currently, I do love knitting withLavish Fibres' Alpaca. And I agree with KM, Dream in Color (I'm using Smooshy right now)is wonderful, I love their colors.

So many choices, so little time.....perhaps my birthday swap package will have something that I have never worked with in it.....like that subtle hint?

It is so HARD to choose. I'm with nancy whose fave yarn changes each time she finds a new one.

I am a slacker in the mailing out of prize package...I promise it will go in the mail this week.
