I have to agree. I get so tired of hearing (well, reading) "acryl-ICK" or "crapyarn". has its uses and it can be great stuff to work with!

I also think your husband's old sweater looks nice :) That jog that you so carefully pointed out? Design feature!


Yeah - total negativity towards a very prevalent fiber (well - pseudo fiber) really wears on my nerves. As you say, acrylics certainly have their time & place. Heck, last time I checked most "purists" use blends anyway. "Pot & Kettle" comes to mind. Hehehehe

Yep - design feature. That's what hubbie says too. I think you're both sweet. :)


To be honest, I get a real boot out of those exclaiming over novelty yarns (almost always polyester and/or nylon) and things like Berroco's suede - also nylon.


Just wanted to say how fantastic your top is ! Great windswept model shot as well !

if you like the yarn that's all that matters.


Thanks Emma! Each project I complete brings me closer to Koigu!


wow - you mentioned me on your blog - i'm blown away!!

Just a little postscript about acrylic yarn applications: all those sock knitters out there (should) know the value of added acrylic to sock yarn - prevents your heard earned socks wearing away in record time!!

your knitting looks great and your DH sounds very sweet

Cheers for now


Hehehehe, Nat. That's right - a mention from me makes anyone famous. :::wink:::

Thanks for the compliments...and yes - good point about the acrylic in sock yarn!
