Well it is basically the fault of all you ladies that I buy expensive yarn. I just bought my first malagrigo (two hanks) a hank of 100% silk from debbie bliss. And a hank of Socks That Rock.
Some days I wish I could back to knitting with just acrylic. But alas, those days are long gone. Really, you only have to finish one fancy garment with a fancy yarn and you can never go back!
