I found a new (at least new to me) yarn this last week and I am going to review it here for you as if I were the Yarn Harlot or the Keyboard Biologist or somebody.
The yarn I found is Berroco Comfort.
50% Super Fine Nylon and 50% Super Fine Acrylic
about $6 for 210 yards
I am not a big fan of the synthetics as a rule. However, it has a very nice feel to it, not at all scratchy and has a pretty good memory. It is machine washable, so it is good for gifts for busy people and non-knitters that don't understand our obsession for the alpacas and the llamas and such. It seems to soften up even more with washing.
This one tends to split rather easily and requires a little extra care when knitting to prevent that, but overall I think it is worth it.
I hope everyone had a happy, warm, safe, comfortable holiday.
This year I am going to start focusing on the great things in my life, so each time I post I am going to find 3 things that I am thankful for. I have stolen this idea from Cole.
1. I am thankful my family is my family (I have seen some of the alternatives and sheesh)
2. I am thankful that I know how to knit.
3. I am thankful that I was born after the discovery of electricity.
